relocating chemicals

Post by plooyen »

We are in the process of moving to a new building on school site
Anyone know of a company that will do the safe relocations of D&H goods?
Preferably SW Sydney

We did our's after hours, by the science staff. each trolley had different d&h goods on them, One class 8, one class 5 etc. We read the SDS and four or more people stayed with the trolley, etc. One trolley we packed in boxes, so no chance of a fall off.

Yeah , I'd just do it myself . One school I worked at had Chem store remote from labs and prep room, so was always carrying Chems around school .
But in bulk , I agree with Labbie , do them in DG groups .
Although after hours would be preferable , moving a Tub at a time when the kids were in class would be pretty safe and surely you don't have that many chemicals that it wouldn't take too long to move them .

Although its always nice to have someone else to cop the shit if something goes wrong :thumbup:

I'd be more inclined to pay someone to do it if you have the budget. Hand the risk over to someone else but ensure they have their own risk assessments etc prepared.
I think of the disaster if you had two or three litres of conc acid fall off the trolley and break open - yuk!

Sorry, don't know of anyone that does it. Could you try contacting one of the chemical disposal companies, they may know someone who does this work.
