WorkSafe introduced law changes aiming to improve the storage of class 6 (toxic) and class 8 (corrosive) substances. Anyone using and storing these substances in quantities over the set thresholds will have to find a solution to accommodate the new requirements.


The changes will take effect in two parts: having an established hazardous substances location from 1 June this year and having a location compliance certificate by 1 December this year.
