Dangerous Goods Management
You are responsible for identifying, controlling + reviewing Dangerous Goods
Dangerous goods are identified as substances that may be corrosive, flammable, explosive, spontaneously combustible, toxic, oxidizing or water-reactive. These goods can be deadly and can seriously damage people, property and the environment. As a result, there is dangerous goods legislation in every state which clearly set out your responsibilities for the manufacture, storage, transport, transfer, sale and use of dangerous goods.
Keeping on top of what constitutes a dangerous good and what you have to do about it can be quite confusing. Fortunately, our team of experienced occupational hygienists can help.
We can diagnose any dangerous goods around your workplace and inform you of any legal requirements that will apply. We can then present you with practical solutions to these problems.

The good news is that there are several solutions for eliminating or controlling exposure to dangerous goods which can be readily implemented such as:
Regulations in this area are changing constantly. Under the model Work Health and Safety legislation that came into effect in January 2012, hazardous substances and dangerous goods will be classified as hazardous chemicals in line with the Globally Harmonised System (GHS). This new system will have a 5 year transition period.
Give us a call if you’d like to know more about how the new laws affect you and what you need to do about them.

The Noise Awareness Training was an eye opener. The presenter showed us great tricks on how to wear our PPE properly, explaining that hearing loss is serious and irreversible, causing other health issues. We really enjoyed it, and already see a positive workplace behaviour change.
