| Icsi: a crossroads for dialogue |

The Institute’s mission is to bring together actors working in the field of industrial safety: at-risk industries, trade unions, local authorities, research centers, universities, specialized institutes, and associations. The Institute provides its members with a neutral, independent space to talk openly, with the aim of building upon best practices and developing innovative, operational solutions.


No one person holds the key to safety! Over the past 15 years, the strength of our association has been its ability to bring together, around one table, the various safety stakeholders.
