Any major technological accident that occurs in France is the subject of multiple safety investigations. This report suggests improvements to the way in which each of these investigations is organized, how they can work together, and how they relate to the judicial investigation.

This report is the result of discussions among around 20 experts (industrialists, union leaders, etc.), from multiple sectors (air and rail transport, energy, chemicals, petrochemicals, gas, etc.). The group worked together for 2 years, and the outcome of their discussions led to the preparation of this document.
