Major Hazard Facilities
NZOSL terminals are classified as ‘Major Hazard Facilities’ under the Health and Safety at Work Act, with the exception of diesel-only facilities. This means they are workplaces that have significant hazards due to the storage and use of large quantities of petrol or jet fuel.
Safety is paramount when working at NZOSL. We work closely with Worksafe and the local community. We develop Safety Cases that contain emergency response information and action requirements through a well-established management system, robust hazard identification and risk assessment processes that NZOSL have in place.
Safety Case Handbook
This handbook from the New Plymouth terminal provides an easily understood summary of the NZOSL Taranaki Terminal Safety Case submitted on 4th April 2018. It briefly explains why and when a Safety Case is required.
If you are a Contractor or Haulier Driver, you must complete an online induction before entering a NZOSL terminal site. When you enter our site for the first time, you will meet a NZOSL team member who will take you through a site specific induction. Our induction process builds your awareness of NZOSL processes and procedures, our way of ensuring you remain safe.
