Abstract

Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) is a continuous improvement framework which includes the reduction of occupational accidents and work-related diseases as one of its goals, contributing to address companies’ responsibility for the health and safety of workers. The implementation of a TPM program enables the organization to improve its performance and to manage its health and safety risks. Those benefits are achieved developing the Safety and Environment Management Pillar together with the other seven TPM pillars. The roles of Autonomous Maintenance, Focused Improvement and Education and Training pillars will be highlighted, relating them with prevention of occupational risks.
