Safety and quality explained

Safety and quality are the most important conditions for us to do our jobs. By safety, we mean the safety of our people. By quality, we mean that we comply with the strict regulations in our industry. We’re proud to say that we have been granted an extensive list of Civil Aviation Approvals to show for it.

We strongly feel that safeguarding these principles goes beyond obvious measures like wearing protective clothing and safety glasses. Also, we have a “First time’s a charm- mentality” That’s why we have developed the Safety & Quality engine. It symbolizes the concept of safety and makes it more tangible.

The EPCOR Safety & Quality engine

Fuel and oxygen are conditions that need to be in place for an engine to run. At EPCOR, we don’t run on fuel and oxygen, but on a document called the MOE (Maintenance Organization Exposition). It serves as our basis and translates all of the safety related items to our daily operations. Without it, we come to a standstill.

Almost all EPCORians follow mandatory training and refresher courses on a regular basis. The training serves as a gearwheel to put the theories in the MOE into practice on the floor.

Regular checks can be regarded the lubricant that keeps the Safety & Quality engine run smoothly. An example of such a check is the Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI) that KLM performs for us every year.

The MOE needs maintenance, just like every other engine. It needs to be updated and adjusted continuously.

The containment housing of an APU serves as a protective cover. In the Safety & Quality engine, elements like emergency procedures and the examination of incidents, serve as such a containment housing in order to prevent (further) damage.

Wellbeing

Besides safety and quality, wellbeing is high on our list. Since we’re a relatively small group of people, we keep an eye out for each other and offer a helping hand to anyone who needs one. After all, we all belong to the same EPCOR family.
