PEME is supporting the Works Management magazine Factory Health & Maintenance Conference. This event is being held on Thursday June 5 at the Heritage Motor Centre, Gaydon.
Maintenance tasks are a risky business and accidents in factories are too often connected to maintenance work itself. Worse still, poorly planned maintenance activities accounted for 30% of all factory and plant fatalities. Effective maintenance is essential to a plant’s productivity, quality and competitiveness. So, despite the risks, maintenance cannot be avoided: it is critical to the safe keeping of plant, machines, equipment and the working environment – and to the safety and protection of people on site.
Employers and managers have a legal duty of care to provide a safe working environment and to ensure safe working procedures for your maintenance teams and the protection of employees. WM’s Factory Health and Maintenance Conference will help you stay on the right side of the law and identify and deploy maintenance best practice in your plant. Topics to be covered will include:
- Maintenance operator safety
- Organised maintenance and design for safety
- Outsourced Maintenance
- Occupational risk prevention
- Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER)
- Efficient maintenance operations
- Maintenance and CI: path to excellence
