DMP’s annual Dangerous Goods Consultants’ Forum was held last week.
Date: Wednesday, 10 May 2017

Approved consultants gathered for the Department of Mines and Petroleum's annual Dangerous Goods Consultants' Forum last week.

Principal Dangerous Goods Officer Lawry Lim said the annual event is for consultants who have been approved by the department's Chief Dangerous Goods Officer to review and endorse dangerous goods storage and handling proposals.

"It gives consultants an opportunity to meet with the Dangerous Goods and Petroleum Safety team and network with their fellow consultants," Mr Lim said.

"More importantly, it is an opportunity to hear about the latest learnings and observations from incidents and inspections conducted by the department.

"We also provide updates on the regulations, safety codes and standards, as well as technical presentations, which assists them in their role as approved consultants."

The forum also featured presentations from industry and the Department of Fire and Emergency Services.
