Why maintenance personnel need to be adequately trained

Main title of the news

Reasons related to both the technological and managerial spheres make maintenance an increasingly complex discipline. This requires increasingly structured and recognized qualification of the responsible personnel, so much so that the European Committee for Standardization (CEN) has developed a specific standard (EN 15628:2014 “Maintenance – Qualification of maintenance personnel”) to specify the qualification of personnel in relation to the tasks to be performed in the maintenance of plants, infrastructures, and production systems.

“The standard UNI EN 15628:2014

The standard has also been adopted in Italy by UNI (UNI EN 15628:2014) and serves as a guide to define the knowledge, skills, and competencies required for the qualification of maintenance personnel. The standard is addressed to both maintenance companies (maintenance service providers) operating on behalf of third parties, and to complex organizations (maintenance users) that have a specific maintenance function within them.

The standard addresses the following professional figures in the maintenance organization:

  • Maintenance specialist technician (Qualification Level 1);
  • Maintenance work supervisor and/or maintenance engineer (Qualification Level 2);
  • Maintenance manager (Qualification Level 3).

These aspects become even more relevant when considering the obligations under the Consolidated Safety Act (Legislative Decree 81/2008), which highlights the civil and criminal responsibilities of managers and executives of organizations commissioning maintenance activities, towards the workers of contracting organizations. On the side of maintenance providers, EN 15628 can instead be a means to better define and organize their maintenance resources and also a tool to guarantee the services provided.

We will soon publish all the details of the course. In any case, those who want to know more and learn more about Tecno Electric Academy’s activities can write to
