News update on deadly accident at Indaver in Antwerp

On September 13th around 2:30 pm an incident occurred on the Indaver site in Antwerp on a location where waste products are received. The emergency services arrived quickly, but unfortunately for one colleague all help came too late. Four other people were transferred to the hospital with minor injuries but were discharged the same night. The remaining colleagues on the site were immediately evacuated. Deliveries were postponed and installations were secured.

Further investigation of the cause

At no point were the people living in the neighbourhood in any danger. The specific cause of the accident is still being investigated. For the investigation of the cause, we are fully cooperating with the qualified authorities, experts and involved co-workers.

Support for co-workers

We are all deeply shocked. Our thoughts are with our deceased colleague, sadly missed and his family and relatives. On Friday morning, all co-workers gathered on the site for an information meeting. Specialised psychosocial support has also been provided.
