Safety for neighbours
Safety has a very high priority. For residents who live in the vicinity of the CHEMPARK and also for the people who work here. In fact, quite a few of them belong to both groups. The CHEMPARK is committed to the safety of all of them.
All plants at the CHEMPARK work according to a uniform safety concept. They have been examined and approved by the authorities. Preventive protective measures are continuously reviewed and optimised. Nevertheless, safety is unfortunately never absolute. An event with effects also in the neighbourhood cannot be ruled out with absolute certainty. Here you will find a quick and clear explanation of the basics of the CHEMPARK safety concept. You will find out everything you need to know about alarms and all-clear signals, how to recognise hazards, what you should do in the event of an incident and where you can get information. Please familiarise yourself with it.
If you have any questions about this or would like to find out more about the CHEMPARK and the topic of safety, please come to one of our neighbourhood offices. To be informed quickly about events, you can subscribe to our newsletter here.
The safety concept
Ensuring the safety of neighbours, visitors and employees is a priority for the companies at the CHEMPARK. Many years of experience and the use of advanced technology help to constantly improve the level of safety. Authorities, employers’ liability insurance associations and companies work closely together on this.
The employees who handle hazardous substances in the production, supply and disposal facilities and chemical storage facilities bear a special responsibility. They are informed in detail about the possible dangers when handling these substances and are intensively trained with regard to the safe operation of the facilities.
To protect people and the environment, the companies of the chemical industry have joined the worldwide initiative “Responsible Care”. “Responsible Care” calls for, among other things, the continuous improvement of safety in all areas.

How to warn the authorities in the event of an incident
Warning the population in the event of an incident is a sovereign task of the authorities, especially the local public fire brigades. The CHEMPARK may not issue any warnings outside its premises. We therefore recommend that all neighbours install the NINA app on their smartphones. The Federal Emergency Information and Notification App, or NINA for short, provides you with important civil protection warnings for various hazardous situations, such as the spread of hazardous substances or a major fire. Weather warnings from the German Weather Service and flood information from the responsible authorities in the federal states are also integrated into the warning app.
