Goals and Objectives:
There are many different sources of danger in heat treatment plants. The Technical Committee considers it an important task to make available the accumulated safety-relevant knowledge at a time when fewer and fewer specialists are being trained. The Technical Committee 8 has set itself the goal of working through safety-relevant issues of a technical and organizational nature for AWT members, providing assistance in solving safety-related issues and informing AWT members. Furthermore, the developments of new laws/regulations are observed in order to inform AWT members about important changes or innovations for the industry and to develop action aids for the implementation.
The close involvement of both experts and young professionals from the areas of production, plant, operating material and component manufacturers and development is an important basis here, so that the safety-relevant knowledge can be developed, disseminated and retained.
