The manufacturing process in Krimelte utilises potentially explosive liquid gases, which are stored and handled in compliance with all safety requirements. To prevent and avoid accidents, we have a continuously operating gas alarm system and an automatic fire alarm. We also have fire-extinguishing devices and systems. Our employees undergo regular training exercises conducted by the Rescue Service.

Due to the usage of potentially explosive liquid gases, Krimelte OÜ has been defined as a company with a category B major accident hazard. We have submitted all of the documents required under the Chemicals Act (a chemical data sheet, a risk analysis, a description of the safety assurance system, a plan for the management of an emergency) to the respective governmental agencies (the Northern Regional Rescue Centre, the Technical Regulatory Authority, the Environmental Inspectorate) and received an activity licence for our manufacturing operations.
