Safety and environmental protection are paramount.
Regardless of industry or work context, companies also bear responsibility for their immediate vicinity. They must strive to protect people and the environment from damage.
For this reason, we will inform you about safety measures and the proper behaviour in the event of incidents/accidents. Industrial accidents where certain substances are released that could result in serious hazards to people, environment and property are referred to as incidents. Not every disruption of an operating area can also be referred to as an incident. Definition in the German Hazardous Incident Ordinance: An incident is an event, such as an emission, fire or an explosion of larger scale, resulting from a disturbance of the intended operation in the field of operation covered by this Ordinance or its annexes, which leads immediately or later to a serious danger or damage to property, inside or outside the operating area or facility, and which involves one or several dangerous substances within the meaning of the Hazardous Incident Ordinance.
ARG and RC2 do not operate any system covered by the German Hazardous Incident Ordinance; instead they are subject to the country specific legal requirements such as Federal Pipeline Ordinance (RohrFLtgV) and the Technical Rules for Pipeline Systems (TRFL) in Germany, the “Besluit externe veiligheid buisleidingen” (BevB) and NEN in the Netherlands and the Basiswet Pijpleidingen and corresponding decrees in Belgium. Modifications to laws, regulations and relevant rules and regulations are implemented in the short term.
Their purpose is to prevent impairment of the public welfare, and in particular to protect people and the environment against the harmful effects of installation, condition and operation of pipelines.
Through its own initiatives and in cooperation with technical service providers and authorities, we constantly adapt the extensive safety precautions in our factories and plants to the latest of safety technology. This enables us to minimize risks for our employees and the people in the vicinity of our lines.
