Fast paced maintenance environment


In Manufacturing industry there are people who fix the machinery and equipment that manufacture a variety of products like cardboard paper, food packing, tin manufacturing machines etc.  These people who maintain these machines are called mechanical maintenance engineers.  These machines run at very fast speeds (pace) and when they breakdown the mechanical maintenance engineers fix these machines (I am not talking of the breakdown in electrics).  Can someone describe the environment as too fast paced for the mechanical maintenance engineer?  Because a maintenance engineer only fixes machines when the machines are not running/broken down.  Is  it a sensible description or ridiculous description?  Does the maintenance engineer have to be as fast as these machines to be able to do the job?

Or you can think of it as fixing a racing car.  The mechanic can only fix the sports car when it has broken down or when it is in the pitstop not when it is on the race track.  Can someone tell the mechanic that the racing car environment is too fast-paced for the mechanic?  Does it make sense?  Like I said the mechanic can only fix the sports car when it is stationary.  The reason why I am asking is because one maintenance engineer was told by his boss (an Electrician) that the work environment was too fast paced for him and I said this was not correct.
