Manage risks

You must manage the risks associated your major hazard facility, whether licensed or not.

You must identify and keep a record of all major incidents and any hazards that could cause such incidents. It must include details of how you went about identifying the potential incidents and hazards, and outline any external conditions that may give rise to such incidents.

You must also do a comprehensive investigation of all major incidents that could occur and prepare a safety assessment that includes:

  • the nature and likelihood of each major incident and any hazard that might give rise to a major incident
  • the potential magnitude and severity should a major incident occur
  • the control measures considered
  • the control measures implemented.

Implement control measures that will minimise the magnitude and severity should a major incident occur – or, better still, eliminate the risk altogether.
