Abstract Report of a hazard evaluation survey of a coal-burning electricity generating station near the Italian city of Reggio Emilia. Contents: technological characteristics of the station; results of the hazard survey (atmospheric emissions, air-quality measurements, noise, environmental radioactivity, liquid and solid waste); health and toxicological aspects of the survey (potential non-carcinogenic and carcinogenic effects of exposure to the substances found in the survey; subjective impact of the findings; environmental effects). On the whole, the safety and health measures implemented by the station are judged highly satisfactory, both from the occupational and the environmental point of view. The commission does make the recommendation, however, that there should be more consultation and cooperation with the population of the neighbouring areas than exist now.
