The ARIA (analysis, research and information on accidents) database

Return to list

The ARIA (analysis, research and information on accidents) database operated by the French Ministry of Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy lists the accidental events which have, or could have damaged health or public safety, agriculture, nature or the environment. These events are mainly caused by industrial or agricultural facilities that have been or are likely to be classified as hazardous, but also by transportation of hazardous materials and other events with lessons that also apply in this context. The list of accidents and incidents in France and abroad, which cannot be seen as exhaustive, together with analysis of them, has been in place since 1992.
With all activities taken together, this database lists over 40,000 accidents and incidents, of which about 37,000 in France. Foreign accidents are listed mainly due to the seriousness of their consequences or their value in terms of experience feedback.
