Regular safety meetings are held at every level. A safety meeting is a consultation with all partners involved to discuss current issues and possible risks.


A safety meeting in a municipality or province comprises:

  • the mayor or governor
  • the emergency planning coordinator of the municipality or province
  • a representative from each discipline
  • a representative of the 112 emergency call centre (only at provincial level)
  • possibly other services, based on a current issue, e.g. a representative of the Public Centre for Social Welfare, the Health and Safety Advisor of a company, etc.

The emergency planning coordinator directs the safety meeting and always draws up a report.
