Safety management systems audits

Prescribed electricity entities must have a safety management system (SMS) in place that contains the following details:

  • The system's safety objectives.
  • The systems and procedures by which the objectives are to be achieved.
  • The performance criteria to be met.
  • The way in which adherence to the performance criteria is to be maintained.

On an annual basis a safety management system performance audit is conducted to verify:

  • that the prescribed entity is giving effect to the safety management system
  • the safety management system documentation continues to comply with legislation
  • that the safety management system is achieving its objectives
  • that the safety management system is adhering to and maintaining the performance criteria
  • that the auditing system of the prescribed entity's safety management system is effective
  • that any modification compliance audits have been done when necessary.
