Draft Minutes of the 1st December, 2015 adopted.

 

Ian

I have made a 24 page submission to the Victorian Major Hazard Facilities Advisory Committee.

ÒThe variation in planning decisions for development near to MHF facilities in Victoria and AustraliaÓ concerning distances and thresholds of risk.

Robin

Asked whether the submission could be made available to the Committee. Ian responded that as soon as the paper was free from constraint he would forward it to the Chair for circulation.

ACTION ITEM

Ian to email his submission to the Victorian Major Hazard Facilities Advisory Committee when he is able to.

 

Action Items

 

10/2013/2

Additional principles upon which Terminals policies are founded for approval and adoption.  Adds a little bit of fullness to the way in which Terminals presents itself.  Under review by CEO at the moment, could you suggest a decision by next meeting?

11/2014/2

Solar Panels – Looking promising decision pending 25/2/16.

Bro

What is the payback period?

Don

2 to 5 years.

Faye

Does the State Government offer incentives / subsidies to industries?

Don

Yes but less incentives than home owners as we already receive reduced rates from the utilities companies.

12/2015/1

Presentation of Annual reports to be provided to the committee for information, and be placed on the CICCC website.

Robin

I think it is time to catch up on reports.

ACTION

Every endeavour to be made to provide the Annual Report to the Community for 2013-2014 at the 26 April 2016 meeting, with the report for 2014-2015 to follow.

 

ITEM 3.       REPORT FROM TERMINALS AND AGENCIES

 

 

TERMINALS PTY LTD

Don

Only 2 months to report.

 

Terminals had no LTIÕs (Lost Time Injury) or MTIÕs (Medical Treated Injuries) in the period at Coode Island, nor for the whole of 2015. Over the  six years from 2010 t0 2015, there were only seven MTIÕs and one LTI.

Looking more broadly at the Terminals Pty Ltd operations in Australia and New Zealand, there were no recordable injuries in the last 12 months, an outstanding performance.

 

 

Incidents

Six incidents over the two months.  Four incidents Severity 2. 

 

M/15/41 – 7 tanks DP cell level transmitters were found to be outside     ±200mm tolerance during check.  Ongoing issue with DP cells losing calibration, capital request for radars in 2016.  Looking at pricing.  Transmitters coming to the end of their natural life.  Being replaced by wireless.  We check the transmitters every month as part of MEX program.

 

M/15/42 – High oxygen level detected in inert vapor duct causing diversion to carbon bed system. The high oxygen readings were found to be coming from T374, caused by the 5% oxygen mixer (with the nitrogen) going out of calibration. This has now been fixed.

 

M/16/01 – 5 tanks DP cell level transmitters were found to be outside ± 200 mm tolerance during check.  Tanks 12, 23, 25 and 316 are repeat offenders.  Repeat of M/15/41.

 

M/16/03 – FIP was left isolated after a call-out to resolve an alarm.  The FIP was also in alarm (known existing fault) and was isolated while fixing the other fault and was not returned to operation.  Problem was a failed instrument on site.  Personnel left the site without resetting Fire Panel.  Fault was a known fault. Action is being taken to resolve the fault on the FIP to prevent recurrence.

Don

We are developing a new system to record and track incidents and actions and modifications (INTERGRIM).  Going to program of an all-electronic dashboard and actions will be automatically monitored by completion dates with reminders.  Work Permit system will be on system as well.

Ian

The new method of recording would be a good item to discuss at the Maintenance Management Asset Management Council.

Don

Terminals has employed a new junior engineer, Michael Conte, who will split his time between Geelong and West Melbourne. Michael is a very keen and enthusiastic young man.  Currently looking after the decommissioning at Geelong. Michael would be a good candidate to attend and give a talk on the subject.

Robin

Faye, who for as long as I can remember, has pushed the issue of a computerization of Terminals maintenance systems.  At last Terminals has been led into the light.

Don

We have ensured the level of detail in Manual matched the computer system and vise versa.

Faye

Does this new system give you any kudos with WorkSafe?

Don

Not really as they could only discuss what was shown to them in the paper version.

Faye

Do the Isotainers form part of the output tonnage trucking or input tonnage shipping?

Don

Isotainers tonnage is part of Road Tanker figures.  Shipping volumes float around, trucking is fairly constant.

Faye

So therefore no direct correlation with the imports and export trucking.

Bro

Do you have a rough percentage of what is brought in by isotainers, rough estimate?

Gary

Approximately 2%

Don

LTI –  Lost Time Injury

MTI – Medically Treated Injury

 

Outcome of the 4 day Chemical Distribution Industry-Terminal inspection scored very well against our competitors.  Everyone was very pleased with the result.

Robin

Very good result.

Ian

So has the VCM business stopped completely?

Don

Two spheres are empty to date.  Very uneconomical shape to hire out.

 

Terminals have also changed fire services provider at the West Melbourne site – Blue Fire Services.  They are very familiar with the site.

Robin

What triggered the change?

Don

We were not getting the quality of reporting.  Keeping the current provider on at Geelong.

Robin

In most committeeÕs if there are reports to be considered by committee they are usually circulated a few days before the meeting to enable Committee Members to read the reports before the meeting. If the early preparation of the reports meant that the report could not be completely finalised for the target period (given the particular date of a CICCC meeting) it would be quite acceptable to see information for the months available and then catch up on missed month at time of meeting.

Don

Agreed that the pre-circulation of the report could be done, and asked Gary to action the request.

 

 

Ian

Is it possible to request a member of the Major Hazard Facility Advisory Committee attend?  They bring down findings in May probably best to request their attendance then.

ACTION ITEM

Gary to circulate the Terminals report by the Friday before the CICCC meeting date. The circulated report need not include the previous month, where the meeting is scheduled in the first 7days of the month. This situation is not expected for the remaining meeting dates in 2016, being on the 26 April, 9 August and 15 November.
