Guide for major hazard facilities – Safety management systems

This Guide provides an overview of what a safety management system (SMS) must contain to comply with the requirements of the Work Health and Safety (National Uniform Legislation) Regulations 2011. It is not intended to provide detailed guidance on how to set up a SMS for the first time. The Regulations require the operators of MHFs to establish and implement a SMS that must be used as the primary means of ensuring the safe operation of the MHF.
