Richard Hall & Associates



Manufacture of Beverages

As a result of an OHS audit, the client, a medium sized beverage manufacturer, identified that his storage of forklift fuel, flavours, inks and sanitizing chemicals was not compliant with Dangerous Goods Regulations and that he did not hold a Dangerous Goods Licence.

Richard Hall & Associates were engaged to advise him on compliant storage and prepare an application for a licence.

Firstly the site was audited to identify the locations, types and quantities of chemicals being stored and used. Compatability issues between chemicals were addressed, and a masterplan for the compliant storage of dangerous goods on the site was developed in conjunction with site management.

Detailed designs were prepared for multiple package stores to store Class 2.1 LP Gas Cylinders, Class 3 inks and flavourings, Class 5.1 Sanitizers and Class 8 Sanitizers, in appropriate locations around the site. The design drawings were made and documentation and certification that the designs complied with the appropriate Australian Standards was prepared.

A site plan for emergency services use was prepared along with a site manifest. The whole package was then submitted to WorkCover for them to issue a Dangerous Goods Licence. Design drawings were provided to the client for construction of the package stores.
