E118A Project – Geothermal pipeline and generating plant:
A company called Greenearth Energy, has a proposal, use heat from a thermal, sedimentary aquifer located 3–4 km beneath the surface in the general area of Gherang, to generate electricity.
Wells will be drilled to bring the very hot water to the surface, where it will be used for generating electricity, then returned to the aquifer. The process appears very environmentally friendly. It does not involve fracturing rocks by underground explosions, and has no emissions, once established. Greenearth are currently investigating sites for drilling “proof of concept” wells to verify the hot water resource, which, if suitable, would be followed by installing a trial generating plant. Up to 12 generating plants, each of 12 Mw, and each one occupying 2–3 ha, could be installed following success of the trial.
ANGAIR supports this project in principle. However, we are very concerned that the area under consideration includes part of the Heritage listed Anglesea Heath, with potential impact on threatened and endangered species and other, ecological values.
ANGAIR has had several discussions with Greenearth, including visits to potential drilling sites. Our concerns are being taken into consideration. As part of its community consultation process, Greenearth has established a Community Reference Group, on which we are represented, along with Gherang residents and other interested people
Development of the project requires approvals from various government departments, such as DSE, Parks Vic, and EPA etc. The Department of Primary Industry manages this process, and stringent conditions will be applied. If approved, the initial drilling would not occur before 2012. As a next step, Greenearth will present options for the initial drilling site at a Community Information day to be held in mid-June 2011. This will be advertised locally. ANGAIR will attend, and will make further comments as appropriate.
Our basic position is that development of any kind should not occur on the Anglesea Heath; however, we will review all proposals from an environmental perspective, and take appropriate action.
Your manager has assigned you to deliver and implement OHS at your workplace. The existing control measures are limited and not very effective. You are working with a team of safety engineers to draft a proposed OHS plan for the site. You are required to present to top management your proposed actions to meet OHS Australian standards.
Your presentation should discuss the following points:
1) Organisation’ OHS obligations
The management’s commitment to OHS awareness and recognition at the workplace
2) T6 Relevance of enterprise management systems to occupational health and safety management
The interrelationship of OHS management system to other existing workplace systems
3) T7 Analysis of working environment and design of appropriate occupational health and safety management systems
4) T8 Analysis of relevant data and evaluation of occupational health and safety system effectiveness
5) T9 Assess resources to establish and maintain occupational health and safety management systems.
6) Dealing with hazardous Events
• Workplace procedures for dealing with hazardous events are implemented whenever necessary to ensure prompt control action is taken.
• Hazardous events are investigated to identify their cause in accordance with investigation procedures.
• Control measures to prevent recurrence and minimize risks of hazardous events are implemented based on the hierarchy of control if within the scope of responsibilities and competencies or alternatively referred to designated personnel for implementation. (4 marks)
7) OHS Training
• Occupational health and safety training needs are identified accurately, specifying gaps between occupational health and safety competencies required and those held by work group members.
• Arrangements are made for fulfilling identified occupational health and safety training needs in both on and off-the-job training programs in consultation with relevant parties
8) OHS Record Maintenance
• Occupational health and safety records are accurately and legibly completed in accordance with workplace requirements for occupational health and safety records and legal requirements for the maintenance of records of occupational injury and disease.
• Aggregate information from area’s occupational health and safety records is used to identify hazards and monitor risk control procedures within work according to organizational procedures and within scope of responsibilities and competencies.
9) Relevant occupational health and safety legislation, regulations and codes of practice related to hazards present in the industry and particular workplace.
• You must bring one relevant Australian legislation standards and how it can be implemented at your workplace as an example.
