Question and answer
describe safe practices for using hazardous substances
Safety tips for handling, storing and transporting rural hazardous substances Safety checklist Check the labels on containers and follow any handling instructions. [ Use protective clothing and equipment such as a mask and gloves. Don't eat, drink or smoke when handling chemicals. Keep hazardous substances away from children, food, animal feed, seeds, fertiliser or flammable material such as
petrol or oil. Check if any containers are damaged or leaking. Put leaking containers inside another secure container and put a label on the outside describing the contents. For hazardous substances you wish to store, place them in a dry, well-ventilated and securely locked shed or cupboard and keep them off the ground. Store chemicals in labelled containers (ideally their original container), with lids tightly closed. Tips for transporting hazardous substances Make sure all containers are securely packaged so they can't leak or give off fumes. Keep flammable and reactive materials separate from each other and other chemicals. Line the vehicle with plastic sheeting to contain any spillages. Put hazardous wastes in the boot or tray of your vehicle, not in the cab in with you, or use a trailer. Keep the load dry and avoid wet weather conditions. [smile] ]
