Description

The risk of causing injury to neighbors or the public may be a consequence of an accident during transport activities.

Prevention and mitigation

The risk of an accident in connection with hazardous chemicals transportation is reduced by optimizing transport routes, relying on selected and audited hauliers, and calling upon worldwide emergency assistance from the Carechem service in the event of an accident. In addition, every effort is made to minimize the number of transportation activities by operating with integrated production units for hazardous intermediates. Solvay follows the safety recommendations of associations such as Eurochlor and CTEF (Comité Technique Européen du Fluor), and programs such as Responsible Care®.
