On July 10 (Fri.), 2020, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) held a meeting of the Committee on High Pressure Gas Industrial Safety under the Public-Private Council on Smart Industrial Safety and, aiming to promote smart industrial safety, formulated a Public-Private Action Plan together with representatives of companies engaging in pioneering efforts.

1. Purpose

Introduction of IoT, AI and other new technologies is an urgent challenge that operators of petroleum and chemical plants are facing to address structural issues, such as highly aged facilities and a shortage of labor.

As an effort to overcome these challenges, on July 10 (Fri.), 2020, METI held a meeting of the Committee on High Pressure Gas Industrial Safety, a body inaugurated under the Public-Private Council on Smart Industrial Safety, and formulated an Action Plan as a compilation of key actions that the public and private sectors should undertake respectively to promote smart industrial safety.

METI will encourage the public and private sectors to advance efforts under the Action Plan and improve the safety and efficiency of petroleum and chemical plants.
