Most terminals operated by NZOSL are classified as ‘Major Hazard Facilities’ under the Health and Safety at Work Act. This means they are workplaces that have significant hazards due to the storage and use of large quantities of petrol or jet fuel. Facilities that only store diesel are not classified as Major Hazard Facilities.
At NZOSL we have stringent engineering controls and operating practices in place. We work closely with Worksafe to ensure NZOSL comply with all regulations and take all practical steps to reduce hazards to a minimum.
NZOSL have emergency response plans in place which are co-ordinated with Emergency Services. These plans include managing any major incident that could affect our neighbours or the local community.
In the unlikely event of a serious incident, Emergency Services will be alerted to assist with evacuation and response.
If you notice a situation that you believe may be unsafe and originating from a NZOSL site do not hesitate to ring emergency services on 111 requesting Fire and Emergency NZ.
