During a recent Non-Statutory Inquiry (NSi) a recommendation was received to introduce a formal system of functional safety authorisation, delegation and accountability for hazardous material control in order to provide a clear line of responsibility and accountability for Statutory compliance below the ExCo. Hazardous Materials present a Risk to Life, to manage these it is considered a SSR responsibility to manage hazards associated with Hazardous Materials. The SSR Assignment Specifications within SEB003 have been updated to reflect this recommendation.
A recent change on the Defence Legislation Support Tool (DLST) has merged forms EMP03/F/01 – Register of Environmental Standards and SMP01/F/03 – Register of Safety Legislation and Other Significant Requirements. To align ASEMS with this change we have updated the forms available in EMP03 and SMP01 to the form available on the DLST titled EMP03/F/01 SMP01/F/03 – Register of Legislation and Requirements. The form is intended to serve both Safety and Environment equally.
After receiving a clarification request regarding the use of eCassandra, guidance has been updated which reinforces the mandatory requirement to use eCassandra.
