Dangerous Goods & Hazardous Substances Risk Management & Assessment
Helping Your Site Achieve Best-Practice & Improved Safety
Chemicals are commonly utilised throughout industrial operations and can pose a risk to the safety and health of workers, the public and the environment. Dangerous goods are classified on the basis of immediate physical or chemical hazards, such as fire, explosion, corrosion or toxicity that may affect life, health, property and the environment. Hazardous substances are classified only on the basis of immediate or long term health effects.
Operating companies need to comply with federal and state legislation and regulations related to the management of dangerous goods and hazardous substances. Regulatory requirements relate to their classification, packaging, labelling, storage, use and transport, as well the mandatory completion of chemical risk assessment.
Bureau Veritas has a demonstrated knowledge and understanding of Australian and State legislation and regulations, related to the management of dangerous goods and hazardous substances. They can facilitate organisations to develop their chemical management systems, complete risk assessments and ensure compliance to regulations. We also have the capabilities to develop tailor-made risk assessment tools and supporting documentation for your organisation, such as risk assessment proformas, training modules, procedures and risk matrices.
