Hazardous Chemicals Storage

Do you have a site with a notifiable quantity of hazardous chemicals? (Notifiable quantity in relation to notifying Safework SA).

If you do, then you are required to create an emergency plan and submit a copy to the South Australian Metropolitan Fire Service (MFS) or South Australian Country Fire Service (CFS).

The South Australian Work Health and Safety Regulators (WHS Reg), requires employers, controllers of premises, occupiers of Dangerous Goods sites and operators of MHFs to carry out a thorough risk assessment to identify, eliminate or control hazards and risks at the site.

Clauses 361 and 557 of the WHS Reg have specific requirements in relation to Hazardous Chemicals (listed in Schedule 11 of the WHS Reg) and materials used, stored or handled at MHF's (listed in Schedule 15 of the WHS Reg).

The MFS and CFS recommend that a whole of site approach to the development of a comprehensive Emergency Plan is adopted. The Emergency Plan should be developed using the site risk assessment as a basis for determining what is required for inclusion in the plan.

To assist operators and licence holders in developing a comprehensive emergency plan, the MFS and CFS have also developed a general emergency plan guideline (Emergency Plans at Facilities having Notifiable Quantities of Hazardous Chemicals and Major Hazard Facilities, MFS Special Risks Department Guideline No. 001).

MFS Open Day - Tanunda Station

MFS Image - 2015-02-21 Tanunda Station

The MFS Tanunda Station opened their station to the public on Saturday, 21 February 2015 from 9 am to 12 noon.

We had loads of locals visit us and meet the local MFS Retained Crew.

Many families had their children's photograph taken on a fire engine.

The brand new aerial and rescue appliances from Adelaide Station also paid a visit to Tanunda for the day to showcase the new equipment.

DEEFA the Dog from the Australian Professional Fire Fighters Foundation came and put smiles on the faces of all the children.

The ever popular Stop Cover Drop and Roll fire safety game was a great hit with every player receiving a prize.

Free sausage sizzle was held

The Metropolitan Fire Service, there for Tanunda and its community since 1919.

We loved seeing you there!
