Safe working conditions

    Building Site Regulations

    The Building Site Regulations for contractors when performing work form part of every contract Fluxys signs with a contractor. It offers them a way to inform their employees and subcontractors and self-employed staff they use about the risks involved and the safety measures that need to be taken.

    Specific safety measures applying to work near natural gas facilities

    Specific safety measures apply to work near natural gas facilities. Fluxys does everything to ensure safe working conditions on its sites and near pipelines for its own workforce and its contractors’ and subcontractors’ employees.

    Safety clauses applying to the supply of goods and services

    If necessary, Fluxys adds safety clauses to an order. These clauses inform suppliers of legal regulations and additional conditions they have to meet. They also provide details of the documents (certificates, manuals, instructions, etc.) the supplier must provide when goods and/or services are supplied.

    Training

    Fluxys has joined forces with specialist training centres to develop two specific compulsory training courses for contractors’ employees who are involved:

    • coating steel pipes and fittings with approved products
    • operating excavators and hoisting devices

    At the end of each course, participants who pass a test are awarded a certificate which has to be renewed periodically.
