The SAFEX Newsletter was initiated for all members and other interested parties:
Members can now notify SAFEX of incidents online by completing theform after accessing the restricted pages (Intranet) with their access codes.
If your Company is a SAFEX Member and you don't have your individual access codes, please request them using the Member Nomination Form. Please do NOT use anyone else's access codes
Incidents reported to SAFEX typically come from three sources:
Our primary and most important source of incident information is the incidents (including near-events) that SAFEX Members themselves experience. Once we are alerted of such an incident we know we can expect a fuller Investigation Report from which we can learn and apply those lessons to our own workplaces.
Associate members have their own sources and regularly bring incidents to our attention. They are committed to advise us of incidents that come to their attention particularly from their members who may not belong to SAFEX.
Finally, Members bring media reports about relevant explosives incidents to our attention. If the media report is inadequate, it triggers a search for more or better quality information about the incident which members or associates may be able to access. We encourage members and associate members to let us have any relevant media reports on incidents or near-events.
Incident information can be shared within SAFEX at three incident reporting levels.
