NO MAINTENANCE WITHOUT SAFETY!
In Belgium the number of fatal industrial accidents due to lack of or improper maintenance work has doubled between 2006 and 2008. This number represents 25% of the total number of fatal accidents on the work floor.
Most of these accidents could, however, have been avoided. Safe maintenance work is the first phase of the prevention procedure.
Get inspired at MAINTENANCE with SAFETY by:
- Specialised exhibitors showcase their safety products for technical occupations
- Free training seminar on "Installing and coaching a safety culture" (in Dutch)
- Unique demos on PPE that enhances your personal safety, health and comfort
- Presentation of the Safe Maintenance Award
Unique and free training session “Safety culture coaching”
Thursday 19/4 - 14h00 - 16h00 (in Dutch)
Sirk Sekuur, or ‘safety culture coaching’, is a methodology that coaches both supervisors and workers on how to install a company safety culture. It zooms in on behaviour as the missing link after structural and procedural modifications. The emphasis is on risk perception and behavioural response among workers and the hierarchical line. Sirk Sekuur literally zooms in on the skills required for a safety culture.
The training is an example of good practice for implementation of the “behavioural change” module from VCA 2008/05 (chapter 4.2). Participants will also learn the LMRA principles through various practice situations.
PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) that enhances your personal safety, health and comfort.
A survey among 500 Maintenance managers shows that hand protection and hearing protection in particular are not always worn when performing maintenance work.
Make sure to drop by the Febelsafe demo stand (Stand A2004 - Hall 2) to learn more about choosing the correct PPE for the job. Participants will also receive PPE samples.
