The Ministry of Manpower (MOM) Singapore announced the Safety Case Regime legislation where all Major Hazards Installation (MHI) companies are required to submit a Safety Case to demonstrate how risks from major accident hazards can be reduced to as low as reasonably practicable (ALARP).
Key players from MHI industry players and Singapore Chemical Industry Council supported the launch of Safety Case Regime to aid the industry in creating a safer and healthier workplace environment in Singapore.
The definition of a workplace as an MHI depends on the nature of work activities and the inventory levels of the dangerous substances meeting or exceeding threshold quantities. MHIs comprises of petroleum refining facilities, petrochemical manufacturing facilities, chemical processing plants and installation where large quantities of toxic and flammable substances are stored or used. There needs to be robust management arrangements to support the required level of protection, covering key elements of a Process Safety Management system.
Under the Safety Case Regime, MHIs are expected to:
- Take on greater responsibilities
- Proactively identify and manage Safety Health and Environment (SHE) risks through integration of all SHE protocols
- Demonstrate to regulators that their risks are as low as reasonably practicable
What is a Safety Case?
A Safety Case is commonly presented using a structured set of documentation that focuses on how major accidents are prevented and how risks from major accident hazards can be reduced to as low as reasonably practicable.
