At GED we can work with your business no matter how big or small. Whether you’re looking for a single waste oil collection or your businesses produces a large amount of waste oil, wastewater or any other hazardous waste and would require regular collection or management.
Waste oil is classified as a hazardous waste, meaning it has to be transported by a certified business or person.
Being a certified business requires us to ensure we adhere to the guidelines of the government with regards to the transportation of hazardous waste, monitor the transportation and movement procedures to ensure maximum safety for all parties and correctly marking & labelling the hazardous waste. It also requires us to have a Dangerous Goods Safety Adviser (DGSA) who is responsible for organising the safe transport and management of hazardous waste such as waste oil, wastewater etc.
Labelling Hazardous waste is essential and a legal requirement. One key reasoning for labelling hazardous waste with the correct information is to ensure increased safety if a vehicle transporting hazardous waste was ever involved in an accident.
Without the correct labelling, emergency services wouldn’t know what chemical they are dealing with, making it hard for them to make professional, informed safety decisions on how to best act to protect anyone within the vicinity. The labels allow the emergency services to know which chemical is involved and undertake the correct procedures and safety measure to reduce the risk and danger to personnel and the environment.
