Exchange of good practices and learning network in Belgium

The sectorial training institute IFP (Institut de Formation Professionnelle), the food industry training institute (managed jointly by the sectorial social partners), has set up a learning network of social actors and companies involved in the training of workers.


The aim is to exchange good practices and to reflect on measures that can help manage an ageing workforce (job rotation, working hours and others).

Outcome and achievements

As a result of this, a website will be set up with good practice examples which can help companies and workers’ representatives who are interested in implementing such measures in their company.

One of the first concrete results of this network is that companies can have a free ergonomics scan. A specialised company screens the equipment and makes a report with recommendations to improve the ergonomics of the equipment.
