Putting your safety first
Acting correctly in the event of an emergency
The German Hazardous Incident Ordinance (§ 11) lays down the requirements that industrial plants have to meet to avoid specified incidents, or limit their implications, by taking technical and organisational measures. Some of the plants in operation at Gersthofen Industrial Park handle relevant volumes of hazardous goods and are therefore subject to the requirements of the Hazardous Incident Ordinance. In view of this, we inform the general public about safety measures, as well as about appropriate conduct in the event of accidents or other events.
Our Hazardous Incident Brochure sets out various scenarios and describes how you should act if such scenarios arise. Please consider this information as part of our safety precautions. This information has been published by those companies operating plants at Gersthofen Industrial Park which are subject to the requirements of § 11 of the German Hazardous Incident Ordinance together with MVV Industriepark Gersthofen GmbH.
We have also provided a summary of the most important rules in four languages: English, Italian, Turkish and Croatian.
