What Is The AIDGC
Understand the risks. Meet your responsibilities.
AIDGC Conference 2020
Planning for our annual conference is proceeding. We have booked the ParkRoyal Darling Harbour as in past years, to secure the venue for 25 September 2020. A physical venue offers valuable networking with colleagues and speakers, but we will continue to review the Covid 19 situation and look at fall-back options such as webinars.
Our working theme this year is new and emerging technologies which pose different issues for storage, handling and transport. We already have one eminent speaker on lower carbon energy sources including hydrogen technology.
Members and others are invited to offer presentations on this theme and should email firstname.lastname@example.org with a brief description in the next couple of weeks – do not be shy and please contact any colleagues who could contribute! Some possible subjects include drones, battery technology and storage systems, other energy storage systems e.g. molten salt, changing codes and standards including storage, packaging, fire prevention etc.
Membership renewals now out!
Dangerous goods exist in almost all businesses big and small. Put simply, they are substances that may pose an immediate hazard to people, property or the environment.
With strict, recently changed regulations, harsh penalties and serious dangers, if you don't understand your risks and meet your legal responsibilities, the consequences can be catastrophic - businesses can go under, staff can get injured and people may even die.
The Australasian Institute of Dangerous Goods Consultants (AIDGC) is here to help you keep your workplace safe as well as to avoid financial losses, insurance problems and the harsh penalties that can result from an accident. AIDGC is an independent industry body that gives you access to over 60 professionally qualified members.
AIDGC is recommended by many regulatory authorities including SafeWork NSW.
AIDGC consulting members can assist with all aspects of Dangerous Goods transport, storage and management.
