*On 12 July 2013, 157,205 litres of unleaded petrol was released from a storage tank into a purpose built bund at Caltex’s premises at its Banksmeadow Terminal during a planned transfer from the water draw valve of the storage tank. Two workers involved in the transfer were taken to hospital and discharged shortly afterwards. SafeWork NSW investigated the incident and subsequently alleged that Caltex contravened section 19 of the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 (WHS Act). This webinar series has been delivered by Caltex under the terms of an enforceable undertaking as part of a settlement of the abovementioned alleged contravention.
