All employees are responsible for avoiding dangers to people and the environment and for strictly observing regulations and laws on occupational, health and environmental protection. Our employees are always trained for this purpose. It is a management task to identify hazards, to assess them and to take appropriate measures. Our crisis organisation is prepared for incidents and carries out periodic reviews.
Our gas supply and its storage and transshipment center meet all environmental protection and safety requirements. By means of remote monitoring by the gas suppliers, they are responsible for the storage reserves, even for extraordinary peak coverage. We have installed an automatic switchover for high availability of the heating gases. Nitrogen is not only an important process gas in the plants, but is also our emergency gas with which we flood everything in case of malfunctions in order to displace the oxygen and minimize the risk of fire.
