    Abstract

    This article reports on a survey of Victorian major hazard facility (MHF) managers as a follow-up to earlier comparative case study research on major hazard, counterterrorism and financial regulation. The case study research suggested that the Victorian MHF safety case regime could be viewed as a "best case scenario" among the three regulatory regimes studied. The results of the survey support this positive assessment of the Victorian safety case regime and the critical role that the regulator plays in making regulations more effective. The survey also provides an important window into understanding what assists in compliance with safety case requirements and how managers deal with business pressures and competing regulatory demands that may threaten safety levels at their respective sites.
