Hazardous Chemicals in the workplace are controlled by a wide range of legislation, including:
Specifically, state legislation regulates how hazardous chemicals or dangerous goods are stored, handled, transported and disposed of in the working environment. The legislation can be confusing and require a considerable amount of time to interpret what risks are related to the nature, use and volume of chemicals on site. The aim of this course is to reduce the confusion and simplify the terminology when managing hazardous chemicals or dangerous goods in the working environment.
HAZCON Consultants can provide assistance to identify your risks for the storage and handling of Hazardous Chemicals and/or Dangerous Goods that can assist with meeting legislative and safety compliance. We will also review the management systems including, policies and procedures, identify signage, training and emergency procedures required on site to minimise the risk to people, assets and environment.
Conduct hazardous chemical risk assessments to identify the hazards associated with use and/or storage of a hazardous chemicals or mixtures of substances. Following the hazard identification, the risks associated with the hazardous chemical is determined based on a range of methodologies including, the use of in-house procedures or regulator guidance. Where inadequate controlled risks are identified, recommendations are advised with suitable controls measures that can be implemented to minimise the risk, so far as is reasonably practicable.
