on the Safety Measures Taken and the Behavior and Actions in Case of Emergency
Dear fellow citizens!
PARALLEL Ltd. due to its subject of activity, namely the manufacturing of polyurethane foam and products thereof, operates the so called risk facilities that are subject of control under the Regulations on Measures to prevent and Limit the Consequences of Major Accidents in Activities Involving Hazardous Chemicals. Pursuant to the Environmental Protection Act and these regulations, you as our fellow citizens will be informed about these facilities.
Due to the fact that the management and technical measures provided by us in the documentation submitted to the Ministry of Environment and Water are well-grounded and enough to prevent accidents and limit the consequences thereof, we received AUTHORISATION TO OPERATE No. 92/2007 in reference with art. 104 of the Environmental Protection Act, amended by Decision No.02-92/28.07.2014 for operation of Paralel EAD issued by the Minister of Environment and Water.
But let us first clarify that not every emergency situation is an accident! Emergency situation is one where the release of dangerous substances can pose a threat the human health and the environment. This is possible only when all our technical and organization measures could not be activated simultaneously in order to prevent the accident.
