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 (WHS) Regulations. It is not intended to provide detailed guidance on how to set up a SMS for the first time.

It has been prepared for the major hazard facility (MHF) operator who has responsibility for preparing the safety case and coordinating the necessary work prior to applying for a MHF licence or renewal. If you already have an established SMS this Guide will help you identify any gaps between the current SMS and the WHS Regulations.
