COMAH Safety Case

Velimor has a range of expert compliance consultants available to produce your Control of Major Accident Hazards (COMAH) Safety Cases.

COMAH Safety Cases are required on top-tier sites that exceed a defined level of hazardous chemicals. Safety cases are conducted as a way to demonstrate that a facility is designed, constructed, commissioned, operated and maintained in a way that risks to personnel/environment are reduced to an acceptable level.

COMAH Regulations

The aim of the COMAH Regulations is to ensure that all necessary measures are taken to prevent any major accidents involving dangerous substances to personnel and/or the environment.

Safety Case Lifecycle

A safety case can be split up into nine subsections which together makes up the Safety Case Lifecycle.
