When applying for a licence to operate a major hazard facility (MHF) in Victoria, operators must develop a Safety Case outline. The Safety Case outline is a record of the plan for developing the Safety Case. This guide explains:

  • what’s included in a Safety Case outline
  • timeframes, employee consultation and how WorkSafe Victoria helps MHFs complete an outline
  • a compliance checklist to develop the Safety Case outline

At the end of this guide, you’ll find advice about changes to a Safety Case outline when an MHF is being modified.
