Flammable liquids are Dangerous Goods, and they have the potential to burn, explode and react dangerously with other substances. Whether you carry large, or minute quantities of flammable liquids you need to ensure they are handled and stored carefully so they don’t harm the health of your workers, property or the natural environment. In this blog we’ll take a look at how to manage the risk associated with flammable liquids stored and handled in the workplace.  Keeping your workplace safe requires focus and consistent, deliberate action. Risk Management is a  practice that is used in all areas of a business to identify potential risks and threats, assess their capacity for harm, and then taking steps to reduce the risk (or eliminate it completely).  Risk Management can be used to manage risks associated with supply chains, cash flow, staff retention, software upgrades, legal compliance and (of course) workplace safety and the management of hazardous chemicals. In Australia, risk management is a mandatory practice under the WHS Regulations in each state and territory.

The landscape of biological and chemical logistics has changed rapidly - as have the regulatory frameworks around it. What has not necessarily kept pace is the end-user understanding of the nature of these logistical processes, their opportunities and their constraints.
