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).

Out and About

MFS at the Royal Adelaide Show!

Royal Adelaide Show 2016

Roll up, Roll up! No-one missed the Metropolitan Fire Service (MFS) in the Jubilee Pavilion at the Royal Adelaide Show this year.

There were 2 fantastic new activities!

For those who had never actually used a fire extinguisher, there were opportunities to learn how to use one with the latest technology in extinguisher training. Loads accepted our challenge … how quickly can you put the fire down?

And our long-standing favourites were still with us. Kids took a journey down ‘Livelonga Lane’, learning what to do in a house fire then entered the competition to win great prizes.  They also tried to become the daily “Stop, Cover, Drop and Roll” champion – learning what to do if their clothes caught on fire.

Everything was free - free activities, free give-aways, and everyone had a great time with the firefighters … not to mention learning some very useful fire safety information.

Can't wait until next year's Royal Adelaide Show!
