Just a quick glance at all the different regulations, laws and standards will make it evident that safety in the workshop and environmental protection starts with adequate hazardous goods handling within the company. This doesn't just apply for manufacturing industries. Other sectors also need to think about how they will handle, store and dispose of water hazardous and combustible materials and liquids, along with waste, in a way that ensures neither people nor nature are adversely affected. KAISER+KRAFT is providing you with an overview of the most important aspects.
Whether you are constantly handling water hazardous or flammable media, or just want to be equipped for an emergency: the legislation on hazardous goods handling is very clear in relation to the requirements placed on equipment needed in the workshop.
