Working groups

Working groups are neutral and independent arenas for all of the actors involved in industrial safety to debate and share ideas.

A forum for discussion

Working groups provide a forum for representatives of all stakeholders to meet to discuss new topics and compare practices. Foncsi takes the results and translates them into research questions.

The Foundation benefits from its close relationship with Icsi. It draws upon the Institute’s diverse membership in creating the groups.

TWO working groupS

The relationship between safety authorities and industry

Facilitated by Eric Marsden, programme manager at FonCSI, this working group aimed to stimulate a debate on the relationship between regulatory authorities and the bodies they regulate (in particular companies operating high-hazard facilities). The group finished its work in 2019 and published a report (currently only in French) on its work. The work will be pursued in 2020 by a strategic analysis on the topic.

Shared safety models in decentralized organizations and with contractors

Eric Marsden also facilitated this working group that discussed the relationship between industrial companies and their contractors, and the way in which partnerships for safety and shared safety models can be established. The group finished its work in 2018 and published a report (currently only in French).

A strategic analysis on contracting and partnerships has started in 2020 as a followup on some of the ideas explored
