The Dangerous goods sites – emergency planning code (the code) is a prescribed document under regulation 75 of the Storage and Handling Regulations. The Dangerous Goods Safety Act 2004 (the Act) provides risk management dangerous goods legislation for the first time in Western Australia. A key focus of this Act is the duty to minimise risk from dangerous goods.

The duty to minimise risk not only applies to employers and employees but to all persons, including members of the public. This duty is placed on everyone involved with dangerous goods and goes beyond the workplace duties of the Occupational Safety and Health Act 1984 and the Mines Safety and Inspection Act 1994. Public safety is one of the most important features of the Act.

The Act is supported by the Dangerous Goods Safety (Storage and Handling of Non-explosives) Regulations 2007.

Breaches of the Storage and Handling Regulations may result in licence suspension, prosecution, or directions to cease operations and undertake remedial action.
