The New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF), through the Royal New Zealand Navy (RNZN), has a requirement to develop retrospective Safety Case (SC) for the Australia New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) class vessels and integrate the safety cases developed under the Frigate Systems Upgrade (FSU) in order to formally demonstrate the vessel is safe to operate and be compliant with the Health and Safety at Work Act (HSWA) 2015.

The ANZAC class vessels were commissioned in 1997. While they have been operated safely for many years a formal SC is now required to show all hazards are being actively managed.

A “Safety Case” is used across NZDF to provide the evidence that a system is “safe to operate” and is “operated safely”. It is a logical set of documents that describes risk in terms of the hazards presented by the systems and platform for specified modes of operation.
