Quarterly Safety Report released for April to June 2021
The Quarterly Safety Report for April to June 2021 has been released to assist industry to improve safety management systems and undertake risk assessments at their sites. The report details incidents and trends relating to hazard management, in addition to sector specific information.
As a high-hazard regulator, we focus on compliance with legislative requirements associated with principal and other high-risk hazards. ‘Roads or other vehicle operating areas’ and ‘fires or explosion’ are hazards that feature regularly in incident notifications to the Regulator.
In this quarter, total incident notifications received by principal hazard were down from 186 to 166. This figure has now fallen below the quarterly average (183) for the previous four quarters.
