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 accidents to zero, protect people and the environment and preserve asset integrity.
To achieve this goal, we have launched communication and awareness-raising initiatives building on our Safety Golden Rules and Principles and Process Safety Fundamentals, have developed new projects in Human Factor and Behavioural Safety and have implemented innovative digital tools.

Good HSE performance is achieved with everyone’s effort and contribute significantly to the development of activities in our company. At Eni we foster a positive culture of safety by developing projects aimed at raising everyone’s awareness of appropriate and safe behaviour to be adopted in all work environments.
Our company contributes every day to maintaining safety standards in every phase of the product and asset life cycle at every level. 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 equipmentthat increase the level of operator safety, such as Smart Safety, HSEni apps, Electronic Work Permit (e-WP), Pre-SenseSafety and Safety Presense e Digital HSE Risk Assessment. Accident data are also collected in databases and studied in an increasingly precise way to act in advance on potentially risky situations, also exploiting the potential of artificial intelligence. At the same time, we promote new tools to reduce accidents, a methodology for analysing behaviour and the Human Factor in relation to safety based on the study of human reliability (THEME-The Human Error Model for Eni), and a tool for investigating the root causes of accidents (RC-Eni).
In November 2022, Eni and Inail signed a five-year agreement to spread a culture of prevention across the energy supply chain in order to prevent accidents and occupational diseases through communication initiatives and personnel training programmes.
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 and assets. We continued to extensively promote Process Safety Fundamentals, the principles to be followed during in-plant activities, and the development of a training initiative to disseminate the fundamental elements outlined in the Process Safety Management System and aimed at all technical/operational and HSEQ personnel.
Safety is a value we share with suppliers and contractors. In addition to raising awareness and evaluating companies on 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.
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 in recent years is confirmed because, even in the current global emergency, activities must always be carried out through safe operations.
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 2022, more than 5,200 emergency response drills were conducted at our operating sites, with varying degrees of scenario complexity.
