Senior maintenance technicians are responsible for making sure a company's premises and equipment are in top shape. They are expected to carry out extensive and continuous maintenance work on machinery, including repairing broken structures and devices. They are also responsible for training and supervising maintenance personnel.
Senior maintenance technicians have to work independently, preparing the grounds for safe and smooth operations. They must be available for mechanical troubleshooting whenever necessary, and they are responsible for identifying the cause of problems and resolving them as quickly as possible.
They also have to keep a log of work and report on the status of equipment under their care. They must be there to help when any machinery needs to be moved or installed, and they must make sure they and their staff are working according to safety standards.
