Safe Work Australia gives guidance on storing chemicals

The Australian government’s health and safety agency, Safe Work Australia, has released a guide for managing the risks of storing chemicals in the workplace.

Aimed at small and medium-sized businesses, the guide explains how to identify hazardous chemicals, and the common health and safety risks associated with storing them.

It also outlines how to manage these risks using tools such as a storage checklist and a chart that shows which types of chemicals to separate and by how far.
