OHS Regulations: Spill Control ObligationsNathan Cartwright
Section 174Y of the Occupation Health & Safety Regulation 2001 states that the occupier of a site must have equipment on hand, “to contain safely within the premises the dangerous goods that have been spilled or leaked.”
The regulation goes on to state:
(a) immediate action is taken to reduce any risk associated with the spill or leak so far as is reasonably practicable, and
(b) the dangerous goods and any resulting effluent are, as soon as reasonably possible, cleaned up and disposed of or otherwise made safe.
Failure to meet your obligations stated in this section of the regulation can result in a Level 4 penalty of up to $27,500.00
