Safety in the workplace: ongoing efforts to reduce the number of occupational accidents

In terms of occupational accidents, 2016 was an atypical year. More than two thirds of such accidents were due to moving around, resulting in a considerable rise in the percentage of ankle and foot injuries. In this light, a decision was made to particularly focus on this issue in awareness-raising initiatives. On the other hand, there was a prolonged period in 2016 (131 days) with no accidents at all involving lost time due to injury. In any case, every accident is investigated and measures are taken to prevent such accidents from recurring.




Fluxys Belgium brings together its initiatives to improve the prevention of accidents and incidents at work in five-year Global Prevention Plans (GPPs). The new validated GPP for 2017-2021 encompasses projects based on seven central themes: psychosocial risks, safety culture as part of the corporate culture, transportation in Belgium, health and welfare, changes based on the legal developments involving the facilities, the Safety Management System, and industrial risks.

Tips for using search operators

Use "quotation marks" to search for a series of words or a phrase in a specific order.

Boolean operators

You can find a group of words or a phrase by using the link words AND, OR and NOT:
known as Boolean operators, these words are used to combine terms in the search field.

  • AND: All the search terms must be included in the publication. Typing in Apple AND Pear will return publications containing both the word Apple and the word Pear.

     

  • OR :  At least one of the search terms must be included in the publication. Typing in Apple OR Pear will return publications containing either the word Apple or the word Pear or both.

     

  • NOT: The term preceded by NOT must not be included in the publication. Typing in Apple NOT Pear will return publications containing the word Apple but not the word Pear.
