I've never heard of any of the 3 mentioned types of "hazardous" sites!, but
from what has been said, Seveso & the other terms are used for sites that
could potentially be hazardous, & the governing body has determined that
"this spot" is potentially "very" dangerous, while these one's aren't so

I'd suggest we run with the level of risk determined by the authorities?

I don't think that it's a thing that a mapper walking past the front gate
is going to be able to say "Aha, this is a Soveso Class 1 plant"! (Unless,
of course, it's signposted that way, & I'd sort of doubt that!)
