For many, vibration analysis is considered a core technology that is integral to the day to day reliability of their facility. With that in mind, it is important to always consider any potential safety issues that may arise with your staff or provider when they’re collecting data or performing work for you.
The truth of the matter is that vibration analysis is where the bulk of our time and energy are typically spent. It takes a lot of training and years of practice to become a great analyst. Training someone to operate a data collector and run a route seems much simpler and is often treated as less important. That mentality can be dangerous to your program. If you start collecting bad data, the best analyst in the world will not be able to give you the correct analysis.
