Prepared for emergencies
Timely and effective incident response, based on robust emergency response planning, is the most important factor in limiting personal injury, asset damage and environmental impact should an incident occur.
Each of our facilities has specific emergency response plans and resources in place, and our people are trained in their use. Our carriers also have emergency response arrangements in place should an incident occur during the transportation of our products.
As part of our emergency response planning, we regularly engage and consult with emergency services, the local community and other stakeholders, and conduct practical exercises to test and rehearse our responses.
We work with the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) to maintain a National Marine Spill Contingency Plan. We are also a participating member of the Australian Marine Oil Spill Centre (AMOSC), contributing trained personnel and equipment under mutual aid arrangements and in accordance with the National Plan for Maritime Environmental Emergencies.
