About Dangerous Goods Storage & Classes of Dangerous Goods
Dangerous goods come in a variety of forms, liquids, solid or gases. They are termed dangerous because they can be harmful to property, people or the environment. Some of these are toxic, oxidizing, corrosive, flammable, explosive, spontaneously combustible or even water reactive.
Some common dangerous goods include oil, paints, acid, petrol, solvents, fertilizers and pesticides. Some workplace accidents that involve dangerous goods could potentially result in fatal or severe injuries, large-scale property or environmental destruction.
Because of the risks associated with dangerous goods it’s important they are stored safely and in a compliant way. Failing to take adequate safety and storage precautions of dangerous goods can make you liable financially and criminally in the event of an accident or damage caused.
The Australian Dangerous Goods Standards outline the things you can do to meet the legislative compliance requirements.

Class 4 Flammable Solids

Class 5.2 Organic Peroxide
Class 6 Toxic Substances
Class 8 Corrosive Substances
