Why You Need Reliable Dangerous Goods Storage

Dangerous goods storage is essential for working with hazardous chemicals or materials. When you are at increased risk of combustion, contamination or health hazards, you need to have the proper containment units on-site to correctly and adequate store these materials. Read on to learn more about the correct way to store these elements and why they are vital to your business. 

Avoid Contamination

When you’re storing potentially hazardous materials and chemicals in a warehouse or lab, there are specific specified methods to follow when it comes to day to day containment. Some substances might react differently when placed next to each other, and others may cause combustion or potentially hazardous results. When you leave these elements unsealed or openly accessible, you cannot control cross-contaminations. With the proper containment units in place, you can ideally store all of these materials safely and separately within their own designated spaces. 

Prevent Fires

Fires can happen in these environments because flammable chemicals are mistakenly placed close to open flames or sparks. Fires in these situations are usually quite dangerous and have a high chance of getting out of control. With designated storage spaces, you can urge staff to control the usage of these materials and ensure all elements are put away when not being used. With an accessible and protective unit nearby, workers have easy access to these resources, while still reducing the chances of causing a fire on-site. 

Avoid Mistakes In The Workplace

Labelling and separating chemicals make a significant difference to avoid confusion or mistakes in the workplace. Minimising the chances of an accident occurring, each chemical or material should be stored with similar components. With these separated storage solutions you can be far more confident that there is no chance of accidents happening while working. 

Compliance With The Law

There are also specific legal requirements for certain industries that require these storage units to be present around your site. As a business, you need to comply with these requirements to ensure workplace safety and high work standards. With limitations on business ability without these elements, it is best to invest in the best products to stand up to the test of time.

Tailgate Delivery Terms and Conditions

Any additional handling or manoeuvring to get the items in to position that requires specialised equipment, such as a tailgated truck or a truck mounted forklift, is not covered by any free freight offers.

For those who are new to freight, a tailgate truck (also known as a tail-lift truck or hydraulic truck) has a rear platform which can be lowered to the ground for convenience when unloading heavy goods.  This is a requirement for unloading freight over 30kg when a forklift is not available on site to unload the delivery vehicle.  Carriers class this as a specialised delivery service, and charge a premium for tailgate deliveries.

Tailgate delivery is to the front door, carport, or closest practical delivery point as deemed by the driver. There must be reasonable vehicle access with height clearance.

Tailgate shipping adds an extra $125 (inc GST) to shipping fees during checkout to cover costs.

NOTE: Selecting the WRONG answer in regards to tailgate shipping means the carrier may be unable to unload your items and may need to re-deliver it.  The Customer will be liable for any further charges for re-delivery should this occur.  Should you have questions or if you are unsure please contact us first.
