EPA & WorkSafe to handle dangerous goods & waste chemicals at Campbellfield site

Under Victoria’s Dangerous Goods Act, duty holders who breach regulations in relation to the storage and handling of dangerous goods are required to take action to ensure their sites comply with the law. WorkSafe can step in to directly ensure sites are made safe if it believes such action is necessary.

In January, a WorkSafe-led taskforce including EPA, fire services, Victoria Police and local councils stepped in to oversee the removal of waste chemical stockpiles discovered.

While the exact quantity of waste chemicals at the latest site is unknown, preliminary calculations indicate that there is potential to store up to 1.6 million litres at the site.
