Safety, a TEPPFA taskforce:
As part of TEPPFA, the safety task force has an important task to show our industries’ effort for Safe and Healthy work environment and environmental care.
In addition the safety task force wants to provide the Teppfa team members with best practices concerning Safety measures (Key Performance Indicators - KPI’s) and programs from within the industry. This will help to communicate to the members and non-members about the groups focus on Safety and continuous effort to provide a safe working place for all employees as an industry standard.
The team, representing at least 5 to 7 large Pipe & Fitting producers, has been meeting annually the last 3 years. "During these meetings the current performance on accidents with sickleave is discussed, as well as the potential root causes" says Roy Sibbald, MEO at Pipelife and one of the members in the task force.
In 2014 we saw a clear Top 3 in accidents: "Handling", "Slip/Trip/Fall" and "Contact with machinery". This information was shared and compared between Teppfa members and actions were determined to mitigate these type of accidents
