These are the collected presentations from the CEFIC-EPSC conference which was held in Brussels on Jan/Feb 2012.

The conference served to discuss and advance the use of performance indicators for process safety.

In a safety culture that constantly seeks to improve, better information leads to better results. Process Safety Performance Indicators are commonly accepted as a useful tool for measuring the behaviours and results of process safety. The questions that the conference sought to answer were: How can PSPI systems be used more efficiently and effectively? How can their use be encouraged? How can they be made easy to adopt?
