Abstract

In the present paper, a methodology for the self-assessment of health and safety management of a company was applied to biogas industry. The goal of this study was to depict a synthetic evaluation of the existing management system through the quantification of different key elements. Among them, the most interesting ones for the case under analysis were those related to (i) the attitude to risk reduction and people protection in compliance with the law, and (ii) the involvement, education and training of the personnel. The results obtained were compared with a previous application to a different sector with the aim of verifying the possible lack of safety management system, safety climate and risk perception in biogas industry.
