Revitalising procedures for major hazards

Guidance for employers responsible for major hazards on how to develop procedures that are appropriate, fit-for-purpose, accurate, ‘owned’ by the workforce and, most of all, useful. It covers offshore and onshore oil, gas and chemical installations; will also apply to railway operators and nuclear installations, and is also relevant to non-major hazards industries.

This guidance is intended to provide practical help for managers, supervisors and others in the chemical and petrochemical industries who are involved in designing, using, checking and reviewing safe working procedures for safety-critical tasks or safety-related activities or processes. It will also help operators and safety representatives who are involved – as they should be – in helping draw up or review procedures.
