The article begins with a description of the legislative framework relating to accident prevention both at fixed installations and during transport. In the case of fixed installations, the priority should be to develop procedures to ensure effective interaction with official agencies, other organisations and the population at large in the case of an emergency. When dealing with material being transported it is necessary to identify all the parties involved, and to establish responsibility for information provision and other tasks, both before, during and after an emergency. The article then examines how to identify and reach the affected populations (residents, visitors, people travelling through the area) and the greater difficulty in the case of transport-related emergencies due to the mobility of the source of risk.
