ETPIS: the Cross-ETPIS Initiative on Industrial Safety
 
 

ETPIS addresses safety of industrial installations and production systems from various industry sectors: manufacturing, chemical including pharmaceutical, oil and gas, buildings, transport systems and related structural components.

ETPIS deals with occupational health and safety of the workers in industry, environmental safety, and the prevention of major accidents with off-site consequences.

ETPIS works on 3 lines:

·  Conventional risks, improving the safety performance in all industry sectors and reducing the impact of accidents taking into account technical, human, organisational and cultural aspects, and the current ‘state-of-the-art methods’ for safety management.

·  Emerging risks, accompanying the innovative industry to reduce the time to the EU market and reach public acceptance of new technologies and products by implementing e.g. the CEN Workshop Agreement CWA 16649:2013 ‘Managing emerging technology-related risks’ adopted on June 26, 2013

·   Safety technologies, products and services, guaranteeing the leadership of the EU safety industry on personal protective equipment, safety systems, inspection and control...

Improvement of industrial safety is important not only in human terms, to reduce workers’ pain and suffering, death toll and environmental & societal impact in case of major accidents, but it is also a way of ensuring that enterprises are successful and sustainable in economic terms.


 
The "Common House" of the European Industrial Safety (EIS)

  

"Common House" is a dynamic structure, following research on Industrial Safety and related innovation processes across the European Union. The goal is to make Europe a more coherent system towards Industrial Safety and to help in better coordinating respective future EU activities with those in Member States, Associated Countries, industry and academia, to avoid duplications of results and unaddressed gaps.

Contribution to the EU 2020 strategy
 
 

ETPIS through its activities and initiatives provides a significant contribution to the EU2020 Strategy, in particular to the sustainability and competitiveness targets, while implementing the ETPIS long term Vision adopted in 2005. This Vision is still up-to-date and very much aligned with the EU 2020 Strategy.

ETPIS VISION

BY 2020…

… a new safety paradigm will have been widely adopted in European industry. Safety is seen as a key factor for successful business and an inherent element of business performance. As a result, industrial safety performance will have progressively and measurably improved in terms of reduction of reportable accidents at work, occupational diseases, environmental incidents and accident-related production losses. It is expected that an “incident elimination” and “learning from failures” culture will develop where safety is embedded in design, maintenance, operation at all levels in enterprises. This will be identifiable as an output from this Technology Platform meeting its quantified objectives.

… there will be structured self-regulated safety programmes in all major industry sectors in all European Countries. These will have firm, measurable performance targets for accident elimination and will meet the annual reduction rate stated in the Technology Platform objectives.

accident free mind set workplaces will become the norm in Europe.

This will contribute in a major way to sustainable growth for all industry sectors in Europe and improvement of social welfare.
