The Coal Seam Gas Logistics Safety Code (CSG LSC)
About Code of Practice
The Coal Seam Gas industry launched the CSG Logistics Safety Code of Practice in November 2011.
Inaugural signatories include Origin, Santos and Arrow Energy.
The CSG Logistics Safety Code of Practice (CSG Code) has been developed by representatives of the CSG industry in conjunction with the ALC to highlight the critical areas of risk identified within the CSG transport and logistics supply chain, including heavy plant.
The 10 Key Elements of the CSG Codes Audit Tool has been developed to assist the CSG industry to measure their compliance to the CSG Code.
This Code of Practice has been developed to give the CSG Industry clear guidelines on how the CSG Code should be managed and measured and to assist the industry to establish their ‘Reasonable Steps Defence’.
The CSG Code is designed to ensure that all participants are aware of their responsibilities in the supply chain when they control or influence the safe and legal carriage of freight. Not only should this produce a clear and equitable alignment of responsibility for the carriage of goods within the various supply chains against the relevant standards and regulations, but it should also induce higher standards of accountability and good practice within the industry.
The ten-point code supports a clear chain of responsibility in freight logistics, which involves all parties in the operation from the supplier and manufacturer to the carrier and logistics provider. In setting clear operational and administrative guidelines for compliance with the spirit and letter of law, the code recognises the importance of public safety and amenity in CSG logistics operations.
While the Code is voluntary and applies only to signatories, it will be a requirement of doing business with all supply chain partners. It reinforces minimum levels of behaviour to help those in the CSG Code manage their obligations under relevant road transport and Workplace Health Safety laws.
The Code is made up of 3 parts
- The 10-point Code of Practice document which is signed by the signatory companies and ALC, is the formal commitment
- A document which sets out the operational and administrative guidelines
- A responsibility matrix which details the responsibilities for each specific role in the supply chain
