AWN assists both lower and upper tier Seveso (COMAH) sites with the submission of notification information to the HSA and with the preparation of COMAH compliance documentation including MAPP, SMS, Emergency Plans & Consultation Plans. We assist our clients with developing systems and procedures to comprehensively implement the MAPP and SMS and to ensure that the criteria of the Health and Safety Authority are met. We also provide assistance with preparation for HSA audits.

The notification submission provides information to the HSA on the operator name and contact details, dangerous substances stored on site including their quantity, form and categorisation, a description of the activity and the surrounding environment, identification of nearby establishments that could increase the consequences of major accidents and mapping.
