The major industrial risk is the accidental hazard that can occur on industrial sites and can have serious consequences for people, property and the environment.
There are several types of effects, immediate or delayed, resulting from a possible industrial accident:
Thermal effects, As a result of a fire or explosion,
The effects of overpressure, Consecutive to an explosion or a burst,
Toxic effects Consequential to a dispersion in air of volatile toxic product or to a fire emitting toxic fumes,
Pollution effects, Generally resulting from the application or leakage of an environmentally toxic product to soil or water.
