Working with Machine- or Process Safety can be very challenging due to the mandatory national and international legislation.
Directives may change and requirements change accordingly. DotBlue has an in-depth knowledge of national and international standards and directives and can thus render qualified and up-to-date services to our customers, so they comply with the Seveso directive, also referred to as COMAH (Control of Major Accident Hazards).
Seveso / COMAH
The Seveso directive applies to all companies handling or storing dangerous substances. They are defined into two categories depending on the quantity of the dangerous substances. That is, the Lower tier sites (below 50 tons) and the Top tier (above 200 tons).
Dangerous substances can also be of oxidizing, explosive or flammable character. When a company handles such substances, the local authorities must be consulted.
