Reliable Manufacturing at Factory Health & Maintenance Conference 2014
All factories recognise the importance of safety, but its link to maintenance is sometimes overlooked. “Planned maintenance is key to creating a safe working environment - ignore this at your peril,” warns Fraser. “Studies show that increasing the proportion of preventive and predictive maintenance work results in a clear decrease in the number of injuries, in some cases by as much as 50%.”
In his presentation, ‘A reliable plant is a safe plant, is a cost-effective plant’, Fraser will argue factories should be giving reliability the same credence as safety. “Although reliability isn’t the only way to ensure a safer plant, it is very difficult for companies to have a good safety record without being reliable. Not only does higher asset utilisation have a clear correlation with improved safety, of course it helps to generate more revenue too and reduce costs in a sustainable way,” he says.
Using a combination of case studies and industry data, Fraser will demonstrate how the best plants are able to compete globally through the application of an holistic top-down and bottom-up 'reliability strategy’ and provide practical advice on how this can be implemented at the delegates’ own plants.
The one-day event is designed to help plants discover and deploy safety and maintenance best practice, and will cover the following topics:
• 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
