Storage and handling of chemicals & substances

Sections in this page

The storage, use and handling of hazardous chemicals are regulated, as well as the generation of hazardous substances and pipelines used to carry them.

This includes:

  • duties for keeping a hazardous chemical register
  • safety data sheets
  • labels
  • placarding
  • fire protection and equipment.

Anyone that stores hazardous chemicals in excess of manifest quantities must hold a licence and submit their Emergency Plan to the South Australian Metropolitan Fire Service.



Safe Work Australia has developed useful guidance on a number of relevant topics.
