Keep It Clean. Dirt, grease, oil, and debris only get in the way and may cover up a serious problem.
Clean as you work and as needed. Use dry cleaning solvent (Appendix F, Item 3) on all metal surfaces. Use soap
(Appendix F, Item 5) when you clean rubber or plastic material.
Rust and Corrosion. Check the components of the WTSC for rust and corrosion. If any bare metal or
corrosion exists, clean and apply a thin coat of oil. Report it to your supervisor.
Bolts, Nuts, and Screws. Check them for obvious looseness, missing, bent, or broken condition. You

screw you think is loose, tighten it or report it to your supervisor.
Welds. Look for loose or chipped paint, rust, or gaps where metal parts are welded together. If you find a
bad weld, report it to your supervisor.
h. When you check for "proper operating condition", you look at the component to see if its serviceable.
