Details of critical components 1 should be documented so that the specifications, applicable standards to which they comply and source of evidence that demonstrates compliance (i.e. test report, third party certificates) is readily available. In maintenance and repair, critical components should only be replaced by equivalents. 3.8 Registering plant design Schedule 5 of the WHS Regulations requires certain plant designs and items of plant to be registered (registrable plant). Schedule 5 is reproduced in Appendix B. Plant design registration involves registering a design from which any number of individual items can be manufactured to that same design. How to register a plant design In order to register a plant design, the design must be verified by a design verifier who must provide a statement that the design has been produced in accordance with published technical standards or engineering principles. Any drawings or other documents provided with the application must be capable of being kept in an electronic form. Design verification The design verification statement is prepared by a design verifier stating that the design has been checked for design integrity and that the design has been produced in accordance with the 1 ‘critical components’. These are components or sub-assemblies – the failure of which will leave the plant in a condition that exposes operators or others to an unacceptable risk level.

referenced technical standards and engineering principles. It must be in writing and signed by the design verifier. The statement must include the name and address details of the verifier and business or employment details. Design verifier R. 253: A design verifier must document the verification process carried out by that person and the results of that process. A design can only be verified by a person who is eligible to be a design verifier under the WHS Regulations. The types of people who would be competent to verify the design of plant may include someone who: has educational or vocational qualifications in an engineering discipline relevant to the design to be verified has knowledge of the technical standards relevant to the design to be verified has the skills necessary to independently verify that the design was produced in accordance with the published technical standards and engineering principles used in the design is certified by a body that is accredited or approved by the Joint Accreditation System— Australia and New Zealand or an equivalent overseas body to undertake conformity assessments of the design against the relevant technical standards. For example, this could include someone who is registered on the National Professional Engineers Register administered by the Institution of Engineers Australia and is determined by that Institution to be competent to design the structure, verify the design or inspect the plant or

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
