Hazmat Safety Priorities for Retailers

Health, Safety, Security, and Sustainability Risks

Beyond regulatory compliance, the retail of hazardous materials and dangerous goods carries health, safety, security and sustainability risks requiring management at a corporate level, including:

  • People, Environment, Assets and Reputation (PEAR) risks
  • Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) risks
  • Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) risks
  • Responsible Care® risks
  • Business Continuity (BC) risks

Many retailers store hazardous materials or dangerous goods and therefore have the responsibility of complying with various regulations surrounding the safe handling of chemicals and other hazmat, training of their staff and, incident preparedness, response, and recovery.

Any product or article having classifiable hazards under the supply regulations requires compliance support across multiple jurisdictions.

From our experience, organizations in the retail sector find the following CHEMTREC services valuable to manage and mitigate their organizational risks as well as help them comply with regulations:
