Dangerous Goods storage audits

We are able to conduct Dangerous Goods Storage Assessments and advise of compliance levels with the relevant legislation. For example, our review of dangerous goods storages would consider compliance with the Dangerous Goods Act, Dangerous Goods Regulations and applicable Australian Standards.

General Hazardous Substances assessments would usually be carried out by one of our experienced consultants.However, if scheduled or high risk hazardous substances are to be assessed, we recommend the use of our Occupational Hygienist, who may recommend personal exposure monitoring as part of the risk assessment.

Our detailed report will then advise on any risk that may exceed the exposure standards and make recommendations controls to reduce risk to acceptable levels.

If required, we can provide training hazardous substances and dangerous goods.
