Maintenance stops are an important part of our reliability. During them, we carry out reactive and proactive maintenance and implement improvements.
For a company like LKAB, well-planned maintenance is a prerequisite for profitable and safe operations. And nothing is more important than safety.
For example, the complexity of our work means that we need to pause certain industrial activities a few times per year in order to carry out major maintenance, repairs and improvements in a way that is safe for both our employees and all suppliers.
The goals of our maintenance stops are:
- No injuries or incidents during the stops.
- The time and cost framework are met.
- We have upgraded and well-functioning facilities and operations afterwards.
As a supplier to LKAB, it is important that you and your colleagues are well informed about your responsibilities, how operations are affected during maintenance shutdowns, preparations, follow-up work and more.
