Evaluating the Storage of Hazardous Chemicals in Australia

Scientifically reviewing the state of Australia hazardous chemical storage guidance material

The Challenge

One of Australia’s primary health and safety Regulators were required to conduct a detailed review of the current guidance material available relating to the storage of hazardous chemicals. The goal was to determine if the current guidelines were adequate and practical to support the Australian Industry.

The Solution

GCG built a robust method and set out to conduct research in order to formalise the available body of knowledge that exists in Australia and internationally. Commencing with an international literature review identification process, GCG collated and systematically reviewed 79 items of guidance material using a custom built evaluation tool.

Following this, we engaged our network and other key industry leaders to conduct research interviews to understand the state of hazardous chemical storage and the current challenges that exist in practice.

GCG’s review has assisted one of Australia’s primary health and safety Regulators to understand the challenges and path forward for hazardous chemical storage in the Australian Industry.

Hazardous Chemicals and Dangerous Goods – Simplifying the situation

One of Australia's largest Rail Operator needed assistance in understanding the cause of recurring unsatisfactory results ensuing from their hazardous chemical and dangerous goods assurance activities.

Dual Focus – The Health Risk Assessment and Task Analysis Project

One of our long term clients in the aerospace industry recently implemented a new and improved health program. As the company has over one-thousand employees, the scale and complexity of the program is considerable and requires careful planning and foresight.

Insurance and Building Remediation

Working with insurance and building companies involved in damaged structure claims can add complexity to an already challenging environment. Following a natural disaster in a remote location we are engaged to undertake assessment of a facility to determine the level of Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM) contamination and the subsequent level of risk.

Asbestos Containing Materials in Fires

An Australian Defence Force department building is extensively damaged in a fire requiring urgent remediation. We are contacted by the ADF and asked to promptly respond to the their needs, and to complete an asbestos survey and assessment report outlining the key remediation risks.
