Toxic substances are that are capable of bringing serious injury or may even cause death if it comes into contact with skin, inhaled, or swallowed. They can also be classified with pathogens such as microorganisms, viruses, bacteria, parasites, fungi, or any other agents which may cause disease in animals and humans.
The examples of Class 6 Dangerous Goods include lead compounds, cyanides, phenols, cresols, some pesticides, biological samples, and clinical wastes, and many others.
The immediate effects that toxic substances can lead to chronic health effects such as liver disease and the development of cancers from prolonged exposures to lower concentrations over a number of years.
The failure to store and handling of toxic substances in a safe and complaint manner may have negative health implications. Another danger that toxic substances may pose is if it were released into the environment. They would have a huge impact on living organisms, which may have a cumulative effect on the food chain.
In addition, if toxic substances are not stored in accordance to the Australian Goods Standards, there is a risk that your company, business, or organisation will be held financially liable for health and environmental hazards due to non-compliance.
It is therefore a prime importance to store and manage them in a safe and compliant manner to reduce the risk of any untoward incidents. The Australian Standard that outlines the requirements is detailed in AS4452-1997.
Like many Australian Dangerous Goods Standards, this standard specifies the requirements for indoor and outdoor storage of toxic substances.
In Australia, indoor and outdoor toxic substances containers must be constructed to strict specifications to reduce the risk to people and the environment.
AS 4452 also outlines how toxic substances can be stored indoors if your business or organization uses small quantities of them. Indoor storage must be compliant and has been manufactured to conform with AS 4452.
