Open for comment: Operational risk assessment guidance note

News announcement - Published 12 August, 2019

The final draft of the operational risk assessment guidance note is now open for comment, noting initial feedback received has been captured in this revision. Interested stakeholders who have not yet had the opportunity to provide input are encouraged to have their say prior to publication.

The guidance aims to help facility operators develop, implement and maintain robust operational risk assessment procedures where degradation of safety-critical equipment or some other abnormal operational situation may potentially compromise safety and increase the risk of a major accident event.

The guidance seeks to also clarify NOPSEMA’s expectations for how an operator should reasonably manage periods where safety-critical equipment cannot meet performance standards as outlined in approved permissioning documents.

To provide feedback on the guidance, please submit comments to safetycaseguidance@nospema.gov.au by no later than COB Friday, 6 September 2019.
