You can use this business function to activate worker safety features in the role-based content available for the simplified planning and execution of maintenance activities. These features allow you to create a safe working environment through the assignment of safety measures to mitigate identified risks, the use of a safety plan, and optionally the integration of an external risk management system such as SAP BusinessObjects Risk Management.

This business function helps you to create meaningful transparency of risk information throughout your maintenance organization and thus ensure that maintenance tasks are executed safely and effectively.

You can use the features of this business function in the following ways:

  • In SAP NetWeaver Portal with the business packages Business Package for Maintenance Worker 1.61 and Business Package for Generic EAM Functions 1.61

  • In SAP NetWeaver Business Client with the PFCG roles Maintenance Worker (SAP_COCKPIT_EAMS_MAINT_WORKER2) and Generic EAM Functions (SAP_COCKPIT_EAMS_GENERIC_FUNC2)


You can enhance the worker safety features available with the business function EAM, Worker Safety (/EAMPLM/LOG_EAM_WS) by activating the business function EAM, WCM Integration into Worker Safety (/EAMPLM/LOG_EAM_WCM_WS). This business function allows you to use WCM work permits to create a safe working environment, as well as add WCM object templates and WCM requirements as safety measures in the safety plan. For more information, see EAM, WCM Integration into Worker Safety.

Safety Measure List

The safety measure list allows you to classify standard objects in your enterprise asset management (EAM) system such as documents, permits, task lists, and production resources/tools as safety measures. In this way, you can create a list of safety-relevant objects from the total of all available objects. By assigning these safety-relevant objects in maintenance orders and task lists, you can make safety information transparently and consistently available during the planning and execution of safety-critical maintenance activities.

Safety Plan

The safety plan ensures that safety is transparently, consistently, and comprehensively considered during maintenance planning and execution. Those responsible for planning maintenance can use the safety plan to ensure that all the safety measures required to mitigate identified risks are assigned in maintenance orders and maintenance task lists. All the information contained in the safety plan is output as part of the job card so that the maintenance workers responsible for maintenance execution are aware of all safety issues and can ensure that they have taken all the required safety measures.

Risk Management System Integration

By integrating a risk management system such as SAP BusinessObjects Risk Management, you can connect the data in your EAM system (for example, technical objects, task lists, documents, and materials) with expertly-assessed risks and responses. In this way, maintenance planners have targeted information about potential risks and the appropriate responses available to them during planning.

Note Note

SAP BusinessObjects Risk Management is the default risk management system for integration and the framework for this integration is delivered as standard. However, it is possible to integrate other systems such as SAP Environment, Health and Safety Management or another third-party system.
