The term "Seveso" refers to the industrial accident which occurred in 1976 near the town of Seveso in Italy. Following this catastrophe, european directives were adopted. These directives were transposed into Belgian legislation and determine all the safety regulations and the preventive measures for the companies at risk. The goal of this website is to inform you about the protective actions you can take in case of an emergency taking place within an upper-tier Seveso company.
