The 5 most important aspects of a Dangerous Goods Storage Policy
1. Hazard Identification
Businesses are required to identify the hazards of the use of Hazardous Chemicals, SDS’s can assist in this supplementing a risk assessment of its storage and use or handling.
A Register of Hazardous Chemicals is required to be kept and maintained. Also, a Manifest of Hazardous Chemicals is required to be kept and maintained if Hazardous Chemicals exceed prescribed amounts.
3. Health Risk
An assessment of the Health Risks to those that use and handle Hazardous Chemicals is required; this may require a monitoring regime and with results measured against specified exposure levels and standards.
Like other matters of Health and Safety, training and consultation is required about Hazardous Chemicals. This is to ensure all are aware of the safe use of Hazardous Chemicals and the associated risks.
5. Control of Risk
Risk Assessments for Hazardous Chemicals is not directly mandated in some WHS Regulations, but it is a good initiative if control of risks is to be appropriately managed by the business. Another key consideration to mitigate risk is to ensure incompatible chemicals are not stored together.
