heal.abstract This paper makes an analysis of all reported accidents and incidents in the Greek Petrochemical Industry for the period spanning from 1997 to 2003. The work performed is related to the analysis of important parameters of the incidents. their inclusion in a database adequately designed for the purposes of this analysis and an importance assessment of this reporting scheme. Indeed, various stakeholders have highlighted the importance of a reporting system for industrial accidents and incidents. The European Union has established for this purpose the Major Accident Reporting System (MARS) for the reporting of major accidents in the Member States. However. major accidents are not the only measure that can characterize the safety status of an establishment: neither are the former the only events from which important lessons can be learned. Near misses. industrial incidents without major consequences. as well as occupational accidents Could equally supply with important findings the interested analyst. while statistical analysis of these incidents could give significant insight in the understanding and the prevention of similar incidents or major accidents in the future. This analysis could be more significant. if each industrial sector was separately analyzed, as the authors do for the petrochemical sector in the present article. (c) 2005 Elsevier B.V.
