EPSC - European Process Safety Centre

EPSC - the European Process Safety Centre - is an international industry-funded organisation which provides an independent technical focus for process safety in Europe.

EPSC's activities are sponsored by chemical manufacturing companies and related businesses with a keen interest in chemical process safety.

EPSC's members secure the following benefits for themselves and the wider European chemical industry:

  • sharing and dissemination of information and experience on safety technology and accident prevention
  • technical input to legislators and standard makers to ensure more realistic legislation
  • improved co-ordination of safety standards across Europe
  • identification of emerging safety-related issues or gaps in knowledge where guidelines or reports could be produced or commissioned.
  • outreach to organisations with potential to advance the practice of process safety
  • transfer of knowledge from elsewhere to Europe and between European countries
  • access to information from a single source
