The Spanish proverb “A man too busy to take care of his health is like a mechanic too busy to take care of his tools,” is particularly fitting for CNC shop owners, whether male or female. Running a demanding business with its tight deadlines, employee issues and financial risks takes a toll on even the heartiest of souls. That’s why paying attention to your health is so important.
You know only too well that if you want to get the most production and longest life out of your machine tools, you need two things: (1) a program of planned preventative maintenance, and (2) well trained machine operators who have good habits, like regularly checking fluid levels and keeping their work area clean and neat.
Well, the same is true of our personal health. Now, we’re not qualified to offer medical advice – you should meet with your primary care physician to establish a healthy living program that’s right for you – but here are some common-sense thoughts to consider and discuss with your doctor.:
Again, talk to a qualified doctor about a preventative health maintenance plan that will keep you in shape so you can make the most out of your CNC shop. And when it comes to getting the best performance out of your production equipment, contact your local Gosiger facility.
