OECD GUIDANCE ON DEVELOPING SAFETY PERFORMANCE INDICATORS
- Industry - including large and small companies that use, handle or produce hazardous substances;
- Public Authorities - any government body, at national, regional or local level that has a role in accident prevention, preparedness or response. (Separate guidance is available for emergency response personnel such as fire, police or medical services);
- Communities and in particular organisations that represent the public located near hazardous installations.
This Guidance does not address what actions should be taken for accident prevention, preparedness or response. OECD has developed the Guiding Principles for Chemical Accident Prevention Preparedness and Response (2nd ed. 2003) which contains general guidance for the safe planning and operation of hazardous installations, and to mitigate the adverse effects of any accidents that do occur.
