Abstract [en]

The purpose of maintenance is to ensure safety and dependability of a system. The maintenance personnel perform different maintenance activities. In Sweden there exist regulations, to some extent covering maintenance and operation of technical systems. The purpose of these regulations is to reduce the risk for the humans, the environment and the property. Still, many accidents occur in connection with maintenance or service. Reasons for this are, e.g., that procedures are not followed, proper training is lacking, or the maintainability of the system is poor.In an ongoing study at the Centre for Dependability and Maintenance at Luleå University of Technology, a number of company representatives are interviewed and incident reports and accident investigations from a number of different papers and scientific reports are studied with respect to possible maintenance related causes and corresponding effects. The purpose of this study is to perform an investigation in order to answer the question: Do maintenance related risks need further investigation? In this paper some preliminary findings will be presented.
