Hazard Management (Preview)

Everyday we have to meet the highest safety and compliance standards as we are classified as a ‘Major Hazard Facility’ under New Zealand’s 2015 Health and Safety at Work Act. The classification is related to the chemical nature of our production work. The likelihood of a major incident occurring at the plant is very low. It is still important you are aware of the potential site effects of any possible incidents.

As part of our safety responsibilities, we have to carry out:

  • Safety Assessments: Identifying all potential hazards that could cause a major Incident
  • Safety Management: Having systems in place to mitigate the risk of a major Incident
  • Emergency Response Planning: Having plans in place for the worst case scenarios
  • Safe Storage and Handling of Hazardous Substances on Site

For information on any of these please discuss with your EPL contact.

A hazard is a potential source of harm or adverse health effect that a person may be harmed or suffer adverse health effects if exposed to a hazard.
