4 How? Articles 6 and 7 of the Agreement Reporting to the NEPSI Council is done in a consolidated way from site to EU sector levelObjective: the number of Non-applications shall progressively decrease unless further improvement can not be achieved (retain status quo)Non-application: the non observance of the Agreement and Good Practices results in increased exposure, in turn resulting in increased riskA list of sites in repeated situations of Non-application will be annexed to the consolidated report.… A reporting format was developed in Annex 3 of the Agreement
5 Data to be reported Section 1: Site information Number of Employees on siteSection 2: Exposure RiskNumber of potentially exposed to Respirable Crystalline Silica (RCS)Section 3: Risk Assessment and Dust MonitoringNumber of Employees potentially exposed to RCS covered by Risk Assessment and Dust MonitoringSection 4: Health SurveillanceNumber of Employees potentially exposed to RCS covered by a generic health Surveillance Protocol and by the Health Surveillance Protocol for SilicosisSection 5: TrainingNumber of Employees potentially exposed to RCS trained on the General Principles of prevention and on the Good Practice Guide Task SheetsSection 6: Good PracticesApplication of technical and organizational to reduce generation / dispersion of RCS, distribution of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)Section 7: Key Notes to be structured into Voluntary Questions:Free text

7 Calculation of Key Performance Indicators Among the number of Employees potentially exposed to Respirable Crystalline Silica on the site, % of Employees covered by:Risk Assessment & Dust MonitoringHealth Surveillance (generic & silicosis)Training (general principles & task sheets)in 2010Good Practices (technical/organizational measures & PPE)
8 ConsolidationConsolidation of the site reports into EU Sector reports to be presented to the NEPSI Council.Originally, site reporting and consolidation of site reports at company, national and EU levels successively should have been made through Excel sheets (See Annex 3 of the Agreement)In 2008 a Reporting online system was set up
9 The reporting systemSet up an online reporting system in 22 EU languages to serve the following purposes:Allow sites to fill in reporting data on line, in a user-friendly format including guidanceAutomatically consolidate site reports into consolidated reports for each of the entities (associations / companies) which may need to be involved.Facilitate the identification and contact of all the sites which are submitted to reporting under the Agreement, and all the entities which will be involved.

12 DefinitionAs the highest level Member in the reporting process, NEPSI will use the system to launch a top-down Member enrolment process within each of its sectors. In 2010, we will send Reminders to report, not re-enrol Membersi.e. Enrolment by NEPSI of each EU Sector Association as a member in the reporting process, enrolment by each EU Sector Association of its Members involved in the reporting process, etc… until a company enrols its sites.
13 PrinciplesMembers from the EU Association, Company and Site levels must ALWAYS be involved.Members from other levels do not have to be involved.Group Company / National Association Members can not coexist in the reporting process between EU Association and Controlling Company / Company levels.For each Member enrolled, the system will produce a consolidated report of the quantitative data provided by the sites it is linked to. Each Member will have access to its own consolidated report, and to the consolidated reports of the Members it has enrolled. Therefore, only Companies will have access to raw site data.

Include remarks in a ‘Voluntary Questions” section3Consolidation of data provided by the sitesSites’ data are consolidated up the reporting chains built at enrolment stage
18 Possible reporting “chains” There are six possible types of reporting chains (filled cells)…Major software rule: one Member can have several child Members, but only one parent Member
19 Split Members in the reporting chain (at enrolment stage) Company B should have two parents as it is a member of 2 sector associationsCompany B may be split into two “companies”, one for each sector it belongs to and receive two invitationsA Site can not be split:When a multiple sector activity occurs on a specific site, please report only on core activity for that site.NEPSISector 1Sector 2Company ACompany BSite aSite bSite cSite dSite e
20 Option 2: Read-Only Guests in the reporting chain A Read-only guest can be any entity which is not included in the reporting process but needs to have access to a Company or Controlling Company’s reporting data.When registered as such by a Controlling Company, a Read-only guest will have access to the Controlling Company’s consolidated report and to the reports of the Controlling Company’s Members, i.e. Companies.When registered as such by a Company, a Read-only guest will have access to the Company’s consolidated report and to the reports of the Company’s Members, i.e. Sites.Please keep the number of Read-Only Guests to a minimum. In order not to overload the system a maximum of 3 Read-only Guests has been set per entity.A facility for consolidating all the reports of the entities that have enrolled you as a guest is available
21 Read-Only Guests When could the Read-Only Guest option be needed? Company B is a direct member of EU Sector 1, but is a member of EU Sector 2 through a national sector association.Company B belongs to a Group Company. Group Company and National sector association can not co-exist in the same chainBut the Group Company can be inserted as a Friend at consolidation stage.NEPSISector 1Sector 2NationalSectorCompany ACompany BGuestSite aSite bSite cSite dSite e
