About this Dangerous Goods Segregation Chart
This dangerous goods segregation chart can be used as a guide for what dangerous goods should be segregated, as some dangerous goods have the potential to react violently if they are mixed together.
Note: Legal obligations do not permit incompatible dangerous goods to be on a transport vehicle or stored together. To avoid possible reactions between the dangerous goods or reduce the risk of accidental leakage or spillage, the goods must be separated from each other by a minimum distance and only be permitted within their compatibility groups.
Classification of Dangerous Goods
Dangerous goods are substances that are classified based on their immediate physical or chemical effects, such as fire, explosion, corrosion and poisoning.
When handling, using, storing or transport of dangerous goods the following safety precautions must be followed:
- Management must research legal requirements and secure any licenses or permits that are required.
- Dangerous goods must not be loaded, transported or stored outside of legislative obligations.
- All dangerous goods/hazardous materials must be segregated from incompatible materials, heat or gas and where a fire or a dangerous occurrence is foreseeable.
- areas where bulk dangerous goods are stored and used must be restricted by a competent authority.
- Where hazard classes are stored, approved placards must be placed at entrances and any other location required to meet dangerous goods regulations.
