La sicurezza informatica

Safety of persons, products and assets

Workplace safety is an essential value to be shared among local employees, contractors and stakeholders.

A common safety culture

We consider people both as the starting point and the final goal of all our actions. This is why we work hard to ensure the safety of each of us and those around us, with a common and shared effort that contributes to the achievement of business objectives. At the base of everything is the consolidation of the safety culture and the dissemination of its essential value among employees, contractors and local stakeholders. The top management is directly involved in this area. The ultimate goal is to reduce incidents to zero and preserve asset integrity.

To consolidate this approach, we use communication tools and initiatives ranging from the organisation of workshops to theatre events and round tables, from the creation of video clips on Lessons Learned learned from our accidents and on our fundamental Eni Safety Golden Rules.

HSE results are achieved with everyone's effort and essentially contribute to those of the business. We must be strong in our professionalism and aware that we can do less alone than together.

Safety throughout the whole product and asset life cycle

At every level, the company contributes every day to maintaining safety standards in every phase of the product and asset life cycle. The organisation and risk management models analysing hazards and identifying measures to avoid them are fundamental. An important contribution comes from new increasingly digital-intensive technologies and state-of-the-art equipment that increase the level of operator safety, such as Smart Safety, HSEni appsElectronic Work Permit (e-WP), Pre-Sense Safety and Virtual Reality Training. Accident data are also collected in databases and studied in an increasingly precise way to act in advance on potentially risky situations. At the same time, we apply human factor analysis methodologies in behavioural safety. 

With regard to process safety, we have developed and adopted a Management System to prevent and mitigate the risks associated with uncontrolled releases of hazardous substances that may evolve into significant accidents, with the aim of protecting the safety of people, the environment, assets and the company's reputation. With regard to natural hazards, the procedures are integrated with the national Civil Protection plans. In particular, Eni has participated in the activities of the Operational Committee for Civil Protection in Italy on issues relating to the prevention, planning and management of emergencies caused by natural hazards, having adopted in 2008 the "Operational Guidelines for Emergency Management” Directive. In November 2021, Eni and the Civil Protection signed a Memorandum of Understanding for a period of four years.

Safety is a value we share with suppliers and contractors. In addition to raising awareness and evaluating companieson health, safety and environment management - HSE, we have established a Safety Competence Centre - SCC to support Eni’s industrial sites in Italy and abroad in the coordination and supervision of contract work.

Process Safety Fundamentals in Eni

The Process Safety Fundamentals (PSF) are rules to be followed for correct information on process safety in the plant, developed by the EPSC (European Process Safety Center) working group in which Eni also participated. Their objectives are to prevent leakages (containment losses) from process equipment, increase the awareness of personnel involved in the operation of the plant and foster a positive culture of care for Process Safety and Asset Integrity. Already adopted by Eni, PSFs are part of the daily routine of our operators and third-party companies that operate on the plants. One of the most important safety initiatives of recent years is confirmed because, even in the current global emergency, activities must always be carried out through safe operations. In 2021, the PSF training activity involved more than 24,000 people with over 450 sessions attended by Eni Persons, Contractors and First Parties on Process Safety and Asset Integrity issues.

Our emergency response

Managing emergencies is above all about preparedness. Plans and procedures at each operating site define the tasks of each person and prepare adequate means of response. The central level ensures the availability of support tools and structures, including the Eni Crisis Unit, which applies its broad know-how to meet the needs of the specific emergency situation in a flexible manner.

Emergency preparedness is regularly tested in drills where response capacity is tested in line with specific plans, including the prompt alerting of the chain of command and resources needed to cope with the event. In 2021, despite the continuing pandemic, operational sites maintained a high level of emergency preparedness, carrying out over 4,600 drills.
