COMAH - Demystifying COMAH - A Basic Introduction
This course is about the principles behind the Control of Major
Accident Hazards Regulations 2015 (COMAH) and the duties the
regulations impose. It has been designed to provide
duty-holders with an understanding of COMAH and in doing so it
removes the veil of mystery that at times appears to shroud these
regulations. This course identifies the COMAH duties for
Lower and Upper Tier establishments and what needs to be done to
comply with them. It also explains the duties that fall to the
Competent Authority (CA) and Local Government. The course
introduces the concept of 'compliant demonstration' and provides an
overview of what the COMAH Competent Authority is looking
for. It will also explain the remodelled COMAH regulatory
regime and the national strategic inspection topics. The
course is particularly targeted at lower tier COMAH operators but
will also provide valuable background for upper tier operators.
The course will cover:
- An introduction to major accident hazards and the major hazards
- COMAH application, including the aggregation rules, duties and
notification to the CA
- The Major Accident Prevention Policy, what it should and should
- Understanding your risk profile
- Controlling your risks
- Roles and responsibilities for compliance
- What to expect from inspections
- COMAH guidance and sources of information
Who should attend?
