SFG20 & Planned Maintenance

The definitive standard for planned and preventative maintenance, SFG20 is unique in the industry.


The standard provides maintenance schedules for assets, covering


· How critical the task is

· How often a task needs to be carried out

· What skill set is required to complete the task – mechanical, gas safe, electrical


An online, dynamic service, SFG20 provides access to a growing library of maintenance schedules which are updated as legislation changes.


There are currently over 900 maintenance schedules, covering everything you might find in a building: boilers, drinks machines, lifting beams, fire doors, medical gas distribution systems, air conditioning, Whirlpools and Spa baths to name but a few!


What does SFG20 stand for ?


Service and Facilities Group – a specialist group within the Building Engineering Services Association, who own and maintain the standard.


SFG20 in the Health Sector


SFG20 has created a set of maintenance schedules specifically for the healthcare sector that is aligned to the Department of Health’s HTMs (Health Technical Memoranda) and Scottish HTMS

Specific tasks for the healthcare sector can be easily scheduled ensuring the equipment remains safe and compliant.

Subsequently, updates can be imported automatically or manually.
