This Operations Environmental Management Plan (OEMP) sets out the framework for the effective environmental management of Port Melville and its surrounding environment. It identifies the environmental risks for the port and outlines Port Melville’s specific objectives and actions for minimising environmental harm. It outlines the port’s legislative requirements and the roles and responsibilities of port personnel for environmental management.
A number of policies, standards, procedures and plans supplementary to the OEMP are listed within it. In particular, the Port Melville Biosecurity Management Plan and Weed Management Plan include numerous measures and controls which are designed to protect the environment.
The OEMP also provides an overview of Port Melville’s infrastructure, operations, environmental setting and cultural values.
