Dangerous Goods Drafting

An Occupier of premises at which certain quantities of dangerous goods, prescribed by Legislation, are kept must prepare plans to assist in handling of any emergencies on the Site. These plans are called
Off Site Emergency Plans.

In all States where quantities of dangerous goods exceed prescribed quantities, considerable detail is required in accurate form for presentation to the relevant Authority for approvals. This detail typically takes the form of comprehensive Site drawings that may be managed to account for future additions, deletions and modifications.
