Safety management system

You must establish and implement a documented safety management system as the primary means of ensuring the safe operation of the facility.

A safety management system must:

  • provide a comprehensive and integrated management system for the control of risk
  • be accessible and comprehensible
  • set out the operator's safety policy
  • describe safety objectives and the systems and procedures to achieve them
  • set out how legal duties will be complied with
  • include all additional matters specified in schedule 15 of the regulations (for example, organisation and personnel, operational controls, management of change, performance monitoring and auditing).

You must also prepare a Safety Case to demonstrate the adequacy of the safety management system and the control measures in preventing major incidents.

Because of the risks involved in operating a MHF, operators have specific obligations to consult with employees and the community.
