Work more safely by learning from Work as Done

Work more safely by learning from Work as DoneArjan van Dijk - Program Director

Operating safely is the key to sustainable asset utilization. Sometimes reality turns out to be different than imagined. There is then a big difference between Work as Imagined, what we have thought out and laid down in rules and procedures to work safely and efficiently, and Work as Done, how the work is actually done in practice. How would you look at these differences through safety glasses?

Maintenance in transition

Maintenance in transitionKaren de Lathouder - CEO

In the next 30 years, industry will have to become completely climate neutral. A huge challenge that will require a lot, including efficiency, digitalization and circularity. These efforts should lead to future-proof industry with minimal safety risks and environmental impact, minimal use of raw materials and fuels, and all at an affordable, competitive price. This upheaval also affects labor demand, the deployment of technology and new development, the strategy and narrative to recruit qualified personnel, and the image of the manufacturing industry. In my talk, I like to discuss these developments and how the maintenance dicipline can contribute to this transition.

Now at the end of Industry 4.0, it is time to reconsider the role of the human factor, resilience and the sustainability in an increasing smart technological environment. Although the other two topics of Industry 5.0, Sustainability and Resilience, the human factor as one of the five topics of the EuroMaintenance conference in Rotterdam 2023, inspires. It encourages me to overthink and discuss how to educate, train and motivate our NextGen’s and prepare them. Looking forward to meet.
