  1. The C4 220VDC was isolated with the unit in service, a written high voltage isolation was not used, the insurance has not made a payment to CSEnergy,
    The RTS insurance will be self insurance by Qld Gov, their is a problem with staff turnover, there is a problem with operator training, maybe the CS Energy mess should be given to Snowy Hydro as surely they would not turn off the 220VDC. They provided a picture of the C4 220V battery, is that small battery able to supply all the critical services for the C4 unit for one hour with battery charger not available. Does the employment of a extra 40 Engineers help, remember the C4 unit operator did not know that that the 220VDC had been isolated

  2. Thanks for sharing this report. it outlines a common scenario in many industries where risk competency relates mainly to personal risk ( PPE and site conditions ) and not to the hidden risk of unmanaged process risk. In my many years of visiting many mine sites/generator sites / and general industrial areas, I have always been conscious of both risks. However, it is not the case that these two areas are taken seriously enough. Hopefully, this report will be taken up with all industries waking up to the combined scenarios stated.
