Safety management platform

A network for sharing experiences across sectors

The safety management platform brings together over 100 specialists with many years of experience in system safety when it comes to operating high-risk work systems.

The companies involved come from sectors such as railway operation, nuclear technology, aerospace, medicine and pharmaceuticals. Members include researchers and safety and quality officers or representatives of supervisory bodies and reinsurance companies.

Research findings and current requirements in operational safety management are presented and discussed at the biannual conferences. Future research and continuing education needs are jointly developed in workshops, allowing experiences to be shared across a range of disciplines spanning both practical operations and practical research.

The cross-sectoral collaboration on the safety management platform contributes to society by protecting people and the environment.
