The Australian Environment Business Network (AEBN) has developed the Introductory Level to Dangerous Goods Storage, Handling and Transport Worksop to bring you up to speed with Dangerous Goods laws and requirements in Victoria.

Please note:  Organisations have an obligation to ensure they are up to date and compliant with dangerous goods laws, including any changes, 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.
