WorkSafe has granted an exemption (SEP1910) to On Gas Limited from compliance with regulation 11.22 of the Health and Safety at Work (Hazardous Substances) Regulations 2017 in relation to the cylinder filling station that is located at 22 Porowini Avenue, Whangarei.
The application to grant an exemption has been decided as follows:
The exemption is granted by WorkSafe in accordance with section 220 of the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 on the basis that WorkSafe is satisfied that—
- the extent of the exemption is not broader than is reasonably necessary to address the matters that gave rise to the proposed exemption; and
- the exemption is not inconsistent with the purpose of the Act.
WorkSafe notes that—
- the risks to health and safety of workers and others can be managed with the use of the fire rated walls and ceiling; and
- the conditions enable the risks at the site to be managed for the cylinder filling station.
The exemption comes into effect 9 October 2020 and expires on 9 October 2025 unless it is replaced sooner or revoked.
