Hazardous Chemicals Storage

Do you have a site with a notifiable quantity of hazardous chemicals? (Notifiable quantity in relation to notifying Safework SA).

If you do, then you are required to create an emergency plan and submit a copy to the South Australian Metropolitan Fire Service (MFS) or South Australian Country Fire Service (CFS).

The South Australian Work Health and Safety Regulators (WHS Reg), requires employers, controllers of premises, occupiers of Dangerous Goods sites and operators of MHFs to carry out a thorough risk assessment to identify, eliminate or control hazards and risks at the site.

Clauses 361 and 557 of the WHS Reg have specific requirements in relation to Hazardous Chemicals (listed in Schedule 11 of the WHS Reg) and materials used, stored or handled at MHF's (listed in Schedule 15 of the WHS Reg).

The MFS and CFS recommend that a whole of site approach to the development of a comprehensive Emergency Plan is adopted. The Emergency Plan should be developed using the site risk assessment as a basis for determining what is required for inclusion in the plan.

To assist operators and licence holders in developing a comprehensive emergency plan, the MFS and CFS have also developed a general emergency plan guideline (Emergency Plans at Facilities having Notifiable Quantities of Hazardous Chemicals and Major Hazard Facilities, MFS Special Risks Department Guideline No. 001).

MFS supports MAC

All we want for Xmas is you Road Safety Campaign

MFS Image - 2014 RAP MAC Xmas campaign

For all of us in emergency services, all we want for Christmas is you, safe on the roads.

That's why the MFS heartily supports the Motor Accident Commission (MAC)'s 'All we want for Xmas is you' road safety campaign.

Like Station Officer and Road Awareness Program (RAP) Coordinator, Chas (pictured), you can visit Victoria Square in Adelaide this festive season to add a present with the names of loved ones, wishing them a safe Christmas.

So, if you're heading to the city for shopping, drop by to add your present.

Tragically last Summer, 20 South Australian lives were lost to road crash incidents. As our MFS RAP firefighters say, crashes are NOT a part of driving. With concentration and common sense, crashes can be prevented.

So, let's all look after our mates and families this festive season.

A safe and Merry Christmas to you all from the MFS RAP team of firefighters and crash survivors.
