2. Why the Workers Compensation Authority in this conference? INAIL is not just compensation but a global protection system for all workers in Italy. INAIL objectives include also the rehabilitation of work accident victims, the reduction of accident at works, .. Research Certification Area is in charge of research on prevention and safety at work, control and verification of work equipment, installations and establishments. The Safety of major industrial plants and infrastructures, involve both workers (employed, contractors) and local communities, as well as land and environment. Safety issues cannot be cut with a knife!Settore Ricerca, Certificazione a VerificaA very short introduction2/14 2 3. Summary How and why the concepts of risks (and safety) are changing May Science and technologies make our communities safer? From Fundamentals to Practice (a few examples from INAIL research area) Suggestions for Practitioners and RegulatorsSettore Ricerca, Certificazione a Verifica Safety and Risk in modern Industries3/14 3 4. SAFETY or RISK? Since the birth of industry, SAFETY was a keyword (e.g. the first code for pressure equipment safe design and operation in UK in 1854). Typical command & control approach safety based. For each sector codes and rules addressing design, construction and service phases. Public Inspector bodies to enforce regulations. Stregth of C&C approach: effective, complete, objective Weakness of C&C approach: rigid, separate, inadequate both for complex systems (with interferences) and for very dynamic (fast growing) industries Operators responsibility: compliance with codes, rules and regulationsSettore Ricerca, Certificazione a VerificaFundamentals: Safety4/14 4 5. In industries, the word RISK entered just with nuclear power plant, 1950/60. A few severe chemical accidents (Seveso, Flixborough) in the 70s demonstrated the C&C Safety Based approach inadequate for major accident hazard. Integrated approach. Equipment & plant safety with human & organizational system, land use planning, Operators must manage risks in an integrated and dynamic way, following essential safety requirements, adopting management systemsFlixborough (UK) Giugno 1974Beek (NL) Novembre 1975Seveso (I) Luglio 1976Bhopal (India) Dicembre 1984Basel (CH) Novembre 1986Settore Ricerca, Certificazione a VerificaFrom Safety to Risk5/14 5 6.

Risk Assessment shyly entered Occupational Safety legislation with EU Directive 89/391, implemented in D.Lgs 626/94 on occupational Safety & Health In Italy the revolution with D.Lgs 81/08, which stressed risk assessment documents. Furthermore Safety Management Systems are highly promoted. (premium discounts, incentives, responsibility exemption..)

Traditional Risk definitionISO GUIDE 51 Safety ed. 1999Corollaries: Risk is a number Phenomenon has to be well known, so both severity and likelihood may be evaluated in a quantitative way.
