Safety expert DEKRA explains the importance of the Control of Major Accident Hazards (COMAH) report, and how its series of free webinars can help businesses understand the requirements.

COMAH regulation was introduced in 1999 (revised in 2015) to ensure that businesses take all necessary measures to prevent accidents involving dangerous substances. Enforced by the HSE (UK), a COMAH report exists to keep people and assets safe and is required for all organisations that use or store specified volumes of hazardous substances.

COMAH reports are not always easy to understand, especially for non experts. Many questions can arise within organisations when it comes to a COMAH report. For example, how do you know which COMAH tier applies to your organisation? How do you make the report a ‘living document’ as is now required? How do you make the report useful and useable in practice?

Safety expert DEKRA has compiled a series of free webinars to answer these questions:

WEBINAR 1: COMAH deconstructed - what you need to know

The HSE and Environment Agencies have developed their position and put great emphasis on a COMAH report being “a living document”.  This is important, but it is also a lot easier said than done. 

This webinar laid the foundations, detailing COMAH report regulation tiers and building understanding of requirements in each of the sections. The webinar has taken place, but a recording is now available here.
