An exposure draft process is currently taking place in New Zealand as the Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment (HÄ«kina Whakatutki) works with WorkSafe New Zealand (Mahi Haumaru Aotearoa) towards new Health and Safety Regulations and Guidelines. In particular focus are potential Major Hazard Facilities (MHFs): workplaces that have significant inherent hazards, where the consequences of failure, be they human, environmental or economic, can be catastrophic.

Did we miss you at the 7th ANNUAL ProSafe Conference last week? If you were in Melbourne at #ProSafe2015 and did not get the chance to speak with Tim Lee or Peter Kriznic from AMOG, contact us via our website at www.amog.consulting/contact to find out how our System Safety Engineering Experts can help you with solutions relating to HSE Engineering Studies, Safety Management Systems, Advanced Analysis Consequence Modelling, Flow Assurance and Process Engineering, and Software Safety.

Perhaps you need to better understand the legislative changes to Major Hazard Facility (MHF) regulations in your state/territory? - We can help you there as well. AMOG is on the ComCare panel of approved assessors for MHFs. 

If you are a System Safety professional who is looking to update/enhance skills, AMOG has written, and facilitates, two courses in System Safety Engineering: a Management Masterclass and an Application Course. Contact AMOG or Engineering Education Australia (EEA) if you would like to attend or receive more information.

System Safety Engineers, both managers and practitioners, from a range of engineering specialisations and sectors should be seeking to fast-track or refresh their knowledge and update their skills on a regular basis.

There is an increasing demand for superior technology and efficiency in modern systems. This has resulted in a substantial escalation in the sophistication and complexity of new designs and an increase in the reliance on modern, software-intensive control systems. These control systems are extremely complex and can include any number of potential safety critical failure modes.

AMOG recently surveyed# 31% of the FPSO Fleet (55 vessels) and identified 7 multiple line failure events, 35 single line failure events and 32 pre-emptive replacement events. About 1/3 of events resulted in production shutdown with one shut down incurring costs of over $US1 Billion.
