I’m not sure specifically what equipment you’re referring to, but generally speaking the answer is a resounding no. Is some fields it is important that equipment downtime is virtually none and imperative that it does nothing to cause harm or injury. But machines are machines - be they smartphones or earth-moving equipment or airplanes or robotic surgery devices - and problems will happen, often at the most inopportune times. In the business world, that usually means your hard drive crashes right before you were going to take a backup or the boardroom display screen dies in the middle of a big presentation. So to me, it’s not a matter of if but when something goes wrong. And honestly, what goes wrong is usually less important than how it is handled.
The first step is planning. Taking precautions in advance can help avoid the worst situations. The second step is having a thorough backup plan that you’ve practiced in advance. And finally, when the first two steps fail you, you remain calm, call upon your experience and knowledge (and that of others if required and available) and you deal with the problem head on.
