AMOG was engaged to assist in developing a Safety Case for a Major Hazard Facility (MHF) licensing submission for a gold mine located in Australia. Over time, AMOG conducted a number of activities on the mine MHF Safety Case, including: 

  • Conducting a series of HAZID/HAZOP Workshops for the process, operations and explosives
  • Conducting Risk Assessments and developing and articulating risk mitigation through bow-tie diagrams
  • Developing Safety Critical Control into a series of KPI's for ongoing management and auditing (Low level PSM program)
  • Development and maturing of the Safety Management System for articulation in the MHF Safety Case
  • Developing the Safety Case Outline and Safety Case report for formal submission to SafeWork SA MHF regulator
  • Conducting a series of other MHF specific tasks such as Legislative Compliance elements (community consultation, security, environment, etc)

The project, was located north-west of Adelaide, and was the first-ever major gold mine development in South Australia to come on stream outside of the Olympic Dam copper-gold-uranium operation. It was also the first commercial mine development in the Gawler Craton.
