This clause is part of policy clause section 5 Risk Management. Risk Management is an essential function of safety and environmental protection and these Clauses reflect that importance. They set both general safety and environmental protection standards and specific DE&S requirements that support the need for assurance and performance monitoring to the Defence Board. The requirement to refer risks through Line management is included here.

Clause 5.1 of the Statute Policy mandated by DE&S states;

All foreseeable Safety Risks and Environmental impacts shall be identified, assessed, prioritised and managed.

This page links to all of the guidance and assurance that is necessary to fulfil in order to adhere to this policy.

Procedures Subject to Policy

EMP05

Impact Priority Evaluation

The procedure provides guidance on how to assess the priority for managing the environmental impact. The aim of this procedure is to assign all the identified impacts to a priority of Low, Medium or High. This will determine which risks and impacts deserve further consideration.

EMP07

Environmental Impact Management

This procedure focuses on the management and reporting of high and medium priority environmental impacts associated with the project.

EMP04

Screening and Scoping

This procedure describes how to carry out a screening and scoping exercise that identifies the project’s actual and potential environmental issues and directs the gathering of relevant environmental information for assessment later in the project level Environmental Management System.

SMP02

Safety Committee

This procedure describes the implementation of a Safety Committee, in order to ensure effective co-ordination between persons holding safety responsibilities.

SMP04

Preliminary Hazard Identification and Analysis

This procedure provides guidance for conducting a Preliminary Hazard Identification and Analysis in order to determine the scope of the safety requirements for the system.

SMP05

Hazard Identification and Analysis

This procedure provides guidance through the Hazard Identification and Analysis process, in which all credible Hazards are identified and subsequently analysed in order to establish the associated Accidents and Accident Sequences.

SMP06

Risk Estimation

This procedure provides guidance through development of the Hazards and Accidents identified previously, to estimate the level of Safety Risk posed by each.

SMP07

Risk and ALARP Evaluation

This procedure provides guidance through Risk and ALARP Evaluation in order to identify where the system Risk meets Tolerability criteria, and where further action is required.

SMP08

Risk Reduction

This procedure provides risk reduction guidance for hazards that have not been evaluated as being either tolerable or broadly acceptable and ALARP.

SMP09

Risk Acceptance

This procedure provides guidance for the acceptance of risks based upon the evidence presented in support of the ALARP statements.

SMP11

Hazard Log

This procedure provides guidance for the continual recording of hazards, accidents and accident sequences, including risk management information, in the Hazard Log.
