Safety, security and environment at Rheinmetall Waffe Munition GmbH

Safety and security are Rheinmetall's absolute priority

In close cooperation with the authorities, we are constantly adapting the extensive safety precautions in our production areas to ensure safety and security for people and the environment. Our primary objective is to avoid incidents of any kind and to reduce any nuisance to local residents and the environment to an absolute minimum.

The operating sites are officially approved in accordance with the Federal Immission Control Act ("Bundes-Immissionsschutzgesetz"). They are subject to the safety requirements of the Major Accidents Ordinance ("Störfallverordnung") and regular monitoring by the supervisory authority. The date of the last on-site inspection by the authority is listed below or in the respective bulletin available for download. Detailed information on the inspection and the monitoring plan can be obtained from the authority named in the bulletin.

Behaviour in an emergency
Since, despite many precautionary measures, incidents can occur in individual cases, we provide information on some safety measures that can be implemented immediately and the correct behaviour in the event of an incident.

Should an incident on our premises pose a risk to residents or the environment, we will inform you immediately in cooperation with the police and fire brigade. Please stay inside the building and keep windows and doors closed.
