18.2. Additional information.

An additional INF case study:

During the year one of the scheme's assets experienced a small hydraulic fluid leak into a water course.

Management contacted USS regarding the matter and within days had prepared a memo to outline the incident and the company's immediate response. This included notifying appropriate agencies and actions to contain and mitigate the effects of the spill. 

A root cause investigation was also undertaken.

Management provided additional information on further health and safety reviews, as reassurance for shareholders and to help demonstrate the seriousness with which they were taking the incident.

Further discussion was tabled for the next board meeting.

USS were satisfied that the incident was well managed and communications with stakeholders were appropriately handled.
