Chemsafety have four Location Compliance Certifiers on the team who are able to help you gain a location compliance certificate for your hazardous substances store. We are able to certify:
What is a Location Compliance Certificate?
They are essentially a check by a Compliance Certifier that your property complies with all the requirements of the Health and Safety at Work Act in relation to hazardous substances.
Do I need an Location Compliance Certificate (LCC)?
If you store over certain threshold quantities of certain hazardous substances at your site then you may need a LCC. Your LCC will be issued for a period of 1 year (or in some cases 3 years), after which the Compliance Certifier needs to revisit your property and do another check to ensure compliance.
There are some cases where you may not need an LCC and Chemsafety will advise you on this.
What does the Compliance Certifier look for?
Our Compliance Certifier will visit the property and ensure that your hazardous substance store is compliant with the Health and Safety at Work (Hazardous Substances) Regulations. Items to be checked for compliance include security, emergency management, certified handlers, signage, fire extinguishers and separation distances.
