Further to the vulnerability studies performed for French local authorities during the definition step of industrial risk prevention plans, Efectis has now been contacted by building owners to advise them on how to adapt their new projects (new buildings, extensions or reinforcements to an existing one).
According to the new regulatory constraints of the recently finalised and approved industrial risk prevention plans, structures located in the vicinity of Seveso classified installations have to protect all persons inside the buildings against overpressure effects, thermal stresses (jet fires, pool fires, flash fires and fireballs) and toxic effects. The objectives are to control urbanisation around hazardous industrial sites, and to reduce the severity of any incidents on those sites. Efectis provides high value support to its clients in terms of finding the best technical and/or organisational solutions that satisfy both the regulatory prescriptions and a pragmatic approach geared to the operating environment.
