Liability for plant owner and operator responsibility by Roman Egger
The operation of buildings and installations may result in disadvantages or dangers to life, health, freedom, property or other impairments to persons or the environment.
Any company operating buildings in the course of its business activities is therefore required by law to take all necessary and reasonable measures to avoid or reduce these disadvantages or dangers. To prevent the danger of increased risk and knowledge deficits, but especially to protect against penalties in the event of damage, systematic action can be taken.
The statutory liability for the plant owner and the responsibility for the operator integrated in it covers all fields of action of real estate and real estate portfolios. In the event that damage occurs – whether to people, the environment or the property – it is already necessary to act with the necessary care. If the regulations are known, all responsible persons act properly and if this is also documented, the responsible persons are also protected from penalties.
