Dangerous Goods

We cover all chemicals, variously called “hazardous chemicals”, “dangerous goods”, “hazardous substances”, “hazardous materials” and the like, depending on the applicable legislation. We also cover dangerous goods which are articles, such as batteries.

Hazardous chemicals or 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.

AIDGC consulting members can assist with all aspects of hazardous chemicals or dangerous goods in transport, storage, use and management.

Understand the risks. Meet your responsibilities.
