Open for comment: Draft operational risk assessments guidance note

News announcement - Published 6 March, 2019

NOPSEMA has published a draft operational risk assessments guidance note for public comment and interested stakeholders are encouraged to have their say.

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 by no later than COB Friday, 26 April 2019.
