Perception on Preventive Maintenance in Civil Engineering Laboratory

Title variants
Languages of publication
Preventive maintenance as a component of facilities maintenance system is to maximize the useful life of all laboratory system. This descriptive study aimed to assess the effectiveness of the preventive maintenance program of Civil Engineering Department in FEATI University. The individual respondents were drawn from the engineering students and faculty members, and employees of the respondent institution. These are the respondents who used the civil engineering laboratory. It utilized validated researcher-made questionnaire, unstructured interview, and documentary analysis as its data gathering instruments. The data gathered were treated using frequency and percentage count.
