    Applicable Irish Legislation

    In 1976 an accident happened at a chemical plant in Seveso, Italy which manufactured herbicides and pesticides. A dense vapour cloud containing tetrachlorodibenzoparadioxin (TCDD), a poisonous carcinogen, was released from a runaway exothermic reaction. This resulted in more than 2000 people being treated for dioxin poisoning.

    Following the Seveso accident, legislation was compiled aimed at the prevention and control of such accidents. In 1996 the Council Directive 96/82/EC on the control of major accident hazards – so called Seveso II Directive – was adopted.

    According to the Seveso II Directive, employers must:

    • Take all measures necessary to prevent major accidents and to limit their consequences for both man and the environment
    • Prove to the competent authority that all necessary measures, as stated in the directive, have been taken in particular for the purposes of inspections.

    SEVESO II & III (COMAH) Compliance Audits

    Enquire about SEVESO II & III (COMAH) Compliance Audits
    The Control of Major Accident Hazards (COMAH) Regulations ensure that businesses:
    • “Take all necessary measures to prevent major accidents involving dangerous substances”
    • “Limit the consequences to people and the environment of any major accidents which do occur”

    Aim of SEVESO II & III (COMAH) Compliance Audits

    Their main aim is to prevent and mitigate the effects of those major accidents involving dangerous substances.
    At CMSE Consultancy, we will make sure that your business comply with COMAH regulations by auditing and analysing the following areas and capacities:
    • Dangerous substances present.
    • Technical and organisational preventive measures in place, as emergency response, External Emergency Plans, fire suppression systems, safety operation procedures.
    • Features and elements in the workplace to mitigate the effect of a major accident.
    By carrying out an on-site walk-through inspection an in-depth review of the plant our Process Safety Engineers will identify possible lapses in the legislation compliance and they will ensure that the plant and the equipment, as well as the operating and maintenance procedures, meet the COMAH requirements.
    Once the audit will be performed, a report will be issued giving detail of existing control measures, basis of safety to be implemented and actions required to comply with COMAH directives.

    SEVESO II & III (COMAH) Inventory Assessments

    Enquire about SEVESO II & III (COMAH) Inventory Assessments
    The Control of Major Accident Hazards (COMAH) Regulations ensure that businesses:
    • “Take all necessary measures to prevent major accidents involving dangerous substances”
    • “Limit the consequences to people and the environment of any major accidents which do occur”

    Aim of SEVESO II & III (COMAH) Inventory Assessments

    Their main aim is to prevent and mitigate the effects of those major accidents involving dangerous substances, such as chlorine, liquefied petroleum gas, explosives and arsenic pentoxide which can cause serious damage/harm to people and/or the environment. The COMAH Regulations treat risks to the environment as seriously as those to people.
    Sites generally enter into scope of the COMAH Regulations in one of two ways:
    a) A business decides to expand and increase its inventory of dangerous substances;
    or
    b) External factors result in one or more of the COMAH qualifying thresholds being met or exceeded (for example, reclassification of a substance as dangerous to the environment).

    CMSE Consultancy Safety engineers will perform inventory assessments for the COMAH site and will develop a report with the following information:

      • Details of dangerous substances present (or likely to be present*) on site;
      • Quantity and physical form of those dangerous substances;
      • Brief description of site activities related to the dangerous substances;
      • Features of the environment which could lead to a major accident on the site;
      • Elements of surrounding environment which could make the consequences of a major accident worse.

    * ‘Likely to be present’ – eg inventory variations which may occur because of seasonal demand, fluctuations in business activity etc, or dangerous substances which may be present sometimes but not at other times. Also includes dangerous substances which may be generated during the loss of control of an industrial chemical process.
