Bibliographic information Jan. 2007, No.429, p.18-20. Illus.
Abstract The aim of the plan for the prevention of industrial hazards (PPIH) is to limit the exposure of the neighbouring population to the effects of industrial accidents involving high-risk installations according to the Seveso classification. It consists of a preventive approach built around the control of existing and future land use, together with the reduction of risks at the source. This article discusses the French regulatory aspects related to the development and application of a PPIH.
