Presented by the
Australian Environment Business Network (AEBN)


This comprehensive and practical Workshop has been designed to bring you up to speed with Dangerous Goods regulations and requirements in Victoria to an Intermediate Level. 

As each state has different Dangerous Goods regulations and requirements, AEBN’s Intermediate Level  to Dangerous Goods Storage, Handling and Transport Workshop will focus on the  segregation of dangerous goods rules, chemical compatibility, placarding of stores, vehicles and containers, labeling, bunding rules of storage of dangerous goods, risk assessment requirements and much more.

Please note:  Organisations have an obligation to ensure they are up to date and compliant with dangerous goods laws and that staff receive appropriate training.  The AEBN recommends that staff receive refresher training every 2 to 3 years, and certainly when changes are introduced.

It is highly recommended that those attending the AEBN Intermediate Level to Dangerous Goods Storage, Handling and Transport Workshop have a sound understanding of the topics covered in the AEBN Introductory Level to Dangerous Goods, Storage, Handling and Transport Workshop.  It is recommended that personnel undertake the AEBN Introductory Level workshop prior to undertaking the AEBN Intermediate Level workshop.
