WE TAKE PRECAUTIONS
Safety is a top priority at the Chemiepark Knapsack, which is why we constantly check and improve our precautionary measures in order to protect your health and that of our employees.
This begins with the safety and security access test "check-in“ at the works gate, without which no-one is permitted to operate at or enter the chemical industrial park.
Potential risks for the environment, health, safety and security are reduced as far as possible or completely eliminated through technical and organizational measures at the individual plants. Processes and production plants have been designed with automatic safety and security installations as well as restraining mechanisms, so that any possible hazards are reduced to a minimum.
The training of employees, regular plant servicing, inspections and maintenance as well as plant operations safety audits ensure the proper functioning of the safety provisions for all the companies on site.
Should an incident still occur despite all these precautionary measures, the accredited works fire department and the emergency manager of the chemical industrial park is on call 24/7 to prevent possible dangers.
In order to guarantee the highest possible safety standards, the chemical industrial park operates an effective emergency organization in close cooperation with the companies. This ensures that competent persons with decision-making powers are available at all times for the community, companies, media representatives and authorities.
The neighboring community is warned by works sirens located in the nearby areas about fires, transport accidents or any other incidents at the chemical plants. We inform you immediately about how to react to warnings and dangers.
