Safety Case
Clear

Tellus' Chandler Facility safety case is both a written presentation and an operational requirement dealing with the technical, management and operational information regarding the hazards and risks of our operations and how they are managed and mitigated. It considers the safety of:
  • the construction and operation of the facility
  • the safety of the facility in the very long term after it has been sealed and closed
Our safety case draws on best practice from around the world and from geological environments similar to that at the site of the Chandler Facility that are internationally recognised as suitable to host a geological repository. Tellus will only accept wastes at the Chandler Facility if they meet strict waste acceptance criteria and will store compatible "like with like" wastes to ensure operational safety and create opportunities for the future recovery and reuse of valuable materials.

Our operational and long-term safety case is underpinned by utilising a combination of engineered and natural geological barriers, known as a multi-barrier system, which provides long term containment and isolation of the wastes placed in the facility.


Environmental Management Plans

A wide range of Environmental Management plans will be uploaded pending approval of the Chandler Facility from both the NT Government and the Commonwealth Government.
