An extraordinary event that causes substantial damage to humans or the environment is considered a “major accident”. The Major Accidents Ordinance covers 2300 industrial facilities presenting a chemical or biological hazard potential, around 4000 km of railway lines, 8000 km of roads and a 20 km stretch of the Rhine. Under the control of the enforcement authorities (Confederation and cantons), many potential hazards have been mitigated over the past 20 years. The population densities in the vicinity of these facilities are rising, presenting a challenge in terms of the coordination of spatial planning and major accident prevention.
