Chapter 3: Chemical management
The Chemical management chapter considers options for minimising harm to the environment from all aspects of chemical use, from justification of the need for chemical intervention to storage, handling and disposal of empty containers.
Note that within each chapter the guidelines provide information and guidance on the following:
- the priority environmental management issues of concern;
- how a business can assess the associated environmental risks;
- practices that are recommended for addressing the identified risks; and
- suggestions for monitoring and recording to demonstrate that environmental management outcomes are being met.
