Maintenance teams are often exposed to wide varying risks both from day to day routine tasks and also unusual once off activities they engage in. The safety of the maintenance team and others exposed is paramount given the risks often involved with these tasks and activities. To manage these risks requires various complex safety compliancesystems, systems to manage and also compliance in a growing environment of legal obligations, statuatory requirements, standards and company directives.
