Explanation of Judgement if Safety System Not Judged to be Adequate


Key Findings, Inspector's Opinions and Reasons for Judgements Made

From the evidence examined I judged that the licensee’s implementation of its arrangements for LC’s 17 & 36 is adequate.

Conclusion of Intervention

I am satisfied that the implementation of the licensee’s LC17 management systems and the management of the organisational capability under LC36 are adequate.

The Safety Representatives are generally content with the management of safety matters at the site.  Some minor issues were raised which I will follow up during routine regulatory engagement with the site.
