CICCC Update—28 November 2012 Meeting

Demonstration of the Maintenance System

Paul Hayward, Terminals Engineering Manager, showed members of the Committee how the Maintenance system for the site worked.

Community representative Faye Simpson led discussion about the value of having a computerised system that would provide a predictive capacity, and reports of any scheduled items not undertaken. Ian Thomas added that such systems were the industry standard.

Carlo Fasolino, Terminals State Manager for Victoria and South Australia, stated that in his experience centralised computer systems are not as easy to use as the system Terminals uses at Coode Island. The present system had received quite favourable comment during a recent WorkSafe inspection at the site.

Paul further advised that, in fact, Terminals Pty Ltd is trialling a computerised system at its facility at Botany NSW. He added the caution that any such system was only as good as the information input. Experience with that new system will guide any future change to Terminals Coode Island facility maintenance system.

Data on the EPA web site

Jessamy Nicholas advised that EPA is currently undertaking a business systems review and introducing a new client management system. This is a major IT project which is due to be complete by March 2013. This will enable community, customers and business to access information on licences, works approvals, non-confidential audits and some permits through the EPA website.

Jessamy will arrange for an EPA officer to brief the Committee on this work at the July 2013 CICCC meeting.

Incidents on site

Only one severity 2 incident occurred during August to September 2012. Both operators were found inside a canola tank undertaking an inspection, when the confined space rules require one person to be outside at all times. The operators have been counselled and will re-sit the confined space training involved

New EIP 2013 – 2016

Following the comments provided at the November meeting, the new EIP (2013-2016) is being finalised by Terminals and will be presented at the February 2013 CICCC meeting. At the suggestion of the Committee, the 11 capital intensive items required following the Safety Case review were added to the 4th EIP.
