    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Provides requirements and recommendations for the storage and handling of oxidizing agents of dangerous goods of Division 5.1. Sets out requirements for storage, handling, operational safety, emergency planning and fire protection for all Division 5.1 dangerous goods and provides specific storage requirements for hydrogen peroxide and ammonium nitrate.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard sets out requirements and recommendations for the safe storage and handling of oxidizing agents that meet the Division 5.1 classification criteria of the ADG Code.This Standard also applies to other dangerous goods that are assigned a Division 5.1 Subsidiary Risk by the ADG Code, except where they are of Class 2, or where more stringent requirements apply under another relevant Australian Standard or applicable regulation.This Standard provides safety requirements for storage areas, operating procedures, emergency planning and fire protection for stores in which oxidizing agents are kept. It provides technical guidance to assist in the storage and handling of oxidizing agents in accordance with the risk management requirements of NOHSC:1015 and regulations drawing on that document.NOTES:1 A discussion of the hazards presented by oxidizing agents is given in Appendix A.2 Specific properties and hazards of ammonium nitrate are discussed in Appendix B.
