After the Longford explosion in Victoria, major hazard facilities have been the focus of many compliance issues and stringent regulation.
The Longford accident could have been avoided with a comprehensive and up to date safety management system.
Occupiers of MHF must minimise the risk of damage to people, property and the environment.
This risk reduction can be achieved through eliminating or minimising hazards and implementing measures to reduce the likelihood of a major accident.
CMO COMPLIANCE, the Cost Reduction System, is a compliance management system which can assist MHFs in ensuring the site has performed necessary safety inspections and creating reports necessary for regulatory compliance
CMO COMPLIANCE, the Cost Reduction System, can assist MHF inspectors in the following:
- Hazard identification, risk assessment and risk control
- Safety reports
- Emergency planning
- Reporting of major accidents and near misses
- Confidentiality of information
- The identification of a major hazard facility
- Information included on-site and off-site emergency plans
- Implementing a safety management system;
- Submitting a safety report showing how the facility will continue to operate safely
CMO COMPLIANCE, the Cost Reduction System, can reduce the risks of common problems that occur during MHF assessment.
Such risks include:
- Incomplete hazard identification and safety assessment
- Safety management systems not integrated
- Inadequate processes for audit, monitoring and review
- Inadequate performance standards and indicators
- Poor links between hazards, risks, control measures and the Safety Management System
