Driven by the growing demand for EV batteries and services, IMG recently moved its Infinitev business into a dedicated site in southeast Melbourne. In preparation for the site move, the team completed training in critical risk management and developed a comprehensive Bowtie Analysis to identify the critical risks related to the site move and lithium battery storage and handling.
A safety business plan was developed, capturing key risks and mitigations including emergency response plans, equipment needs, training requirements and clear responsibilities for setting up the site, moving equipment and ensuring the safety of staff.
A Job Safety Analysis was created for each key task in the site move to assess specific hazards (e.g. manual handling, electrical, slips and trips) and implement controls. This robust process resulted in no safety incidents during the move and the new site was set up for safe operation from day one.
