ICCA juhendmaterjal protsessiohutuse mõõdiku kohta

Pärast pikki tehnilisi arutelusid ja kompromisside otsimist on ICCA viimaks avaldanud juhendi protsessiohutuse näitaja raporteerimise kohta. CEFIC on uue mõõdiku osas positiivselt meelestatud, kuivõrd see võimaldab tulemuslikkust globaalsel tasandil hinnata ning võrreldes CEFIC enda meetodiga võtab arvesse ka teatud madalama ohutaseme juhtumeid. Samas tuleb arvestada, et ICCA mõõdiku rakendamine ei saa olema EL-is lihtne, sest kõiki juhtumeid, mida mõõdiku puhul arvesse tuleb võtta, ei registreerita hetkel olemasoleva õigusraamistiku raames.

CEFIC positsioon mõõdiku kohta on järgmine:

1. Our overall opinion on the new metric is positive. Apart from the advantage of having a performance metric that will be globally applicable, a comparison with the CEFIC guidance shows that the ICCA metric is capturing certain process safety events at a lower level compared to the level of the CEFIC guidance and brings more focus on events that have the potential of developing into a bigger incident.

2. However, the implementation of the ICCA metric with complete reporting of process safety incidents regarding injuries is an issue, as the ICCA metric includes all OSHA recordable injuries (i.e. everything above First Aid). Recording such injuries is not part of legislation in Europe and although some few companies have these data available, it is not common practice in Europe. Most companies in Europe, particularly the large group of SME's, track 'lost time injuries'. Therefore those companies "miss" the share of events that result in a 'recordable injury' but not in a 'lost time injury'. Data at BASF showed that the share of 'injuries' in the total amount of process safety events is typically < 10%, and of this < 5% is a 'lost time injury'. This means, that the overall significance of this deviation from the metric is limited. In view of the limited impact on the resulting performance rate when including only LTI instead of 'recordable injuries', the PPS-IT recommends national associations to accept this deviation from the ICCA metric as the current practice. The PPS-IT asks CEFIC to document this transparently on CEFIC level so that associations and companies could refer to that when needed (e.g. in case of audits).

3. Moreover, the PPS-IT strongly recommends CEFIC to focus on the degree of coverage (i.e. the % of member associations that actually do report PSI-performance) rather than strictly requiring adherence to full reporting of recordable injuries, as the overview on current practice of data collection and reporting in Europe reveals a sad picture: VCI (G) collects data but does not publish; VNCI (NL) collects data but does not report; CIA (UK) collects data and reports; UIC (F) collects (few) data but does not report, essencia (B) neither collects data nor reports yet; Federchimica (ITA) collects (few) data but does not report, scienceindustries (CH) neither collects data nor reports yet. For the rest of the European associations no collecting/reporting activities are known at all!

4. Therefore, the PPS-IT recommends to CEFIC to organize an international workshop on Process Safety in order to kick-off the ICCA guidance on PSE metrics and to use this international setting to achieve the maximum awareness for the new metric to initiate/support the practice diffusion in enterprises and national associations.
