    Abstract. In the context of the global environmental crisis, ensuring the environmental protection of hazardous production facilities (HPF) becomes one of the most important means of achieving general safety. An important tool for ensuring the protection of the environment from the effects of hazardous natural and anthropogenic factors is environmental supervision at the HPFs. However, the problem of developing the concept of environmental safety of the HPFs in the system of general safety has not been studied in depth. Along with the continuing trend in the development of techno-sphere and, as a consequence, the tightening of environmental policy in Russia and in the world, the development of the environmental safety paradigm of the HPFs acquires obvious relevance. The goal of this study is to build a conceptual scheme to ensure the environmental safety of HPFs from the negative impact of hazardous natural and anthropogenic factors. The analysis of the legal and regulatory framework to ensure the environmental safety of the HPFs is presented. It is noted that the emergency situations, the formation of a karst hole for example, may have the significant direct effects on the HPF and indirect environmental impact which can significantly aggravate the ecological situation and even cause the irreversible ecological consequences. The main means of achieving the environmental safety in its broad sense may be a change in the paradigm of the development of socium and each individual person from anthropocentrism to biocentrism.
    Key words: hazardous production facility, environmental safety, technological safety. karst holes.
