Organisations have an obligation to ensure their site is compliant with Dangerous Goods laws and requirements and that staff receive appropriate training to ensure the safe Storage, Handling and Transport of Dangerous Goods.  The Australian Environment Business Network (AEBN) recommends that staff receive refresher training every 2 to 3 years and certainly when changes are announced.

The two half day Workshops have been developed by the AEBN to bring you up to date with the recent changes to dangerous goods, hazardous substances and GHS, in order for your organisation to remain compliant.
