What’s it all about?
Hazardous Substances (Classes 1-5 Controls) regulations
Hazardous Substances (Classes 6-9 Controls) regulations
Specify requirements for:
Hazardous Substance Locations
(2) Class 2, 3, and 4 substances required to be under the personal
control of an approved handler may however be handled by a
person who is not an approved handler if—
(b) the approved handler has provided guidance to the person
in respect of the handling; and
(c) the approved handler is available to provide assistance,
if necessary, to the person at all times while the substance
is being handled by the person.”
My interpretation would be that the AH should be within earshot, or at least present in an immediately adjoining area (no phone contact in DG store).
My advice would be to train all store users as Approved Handlers.
What are the responsibilities of the Test Certifier?
Before issuing an AH certificate, Test certifier must be satisfied that handler meets the required knowledge and skill requirements.
“This is to confirm that:____________________ has been additionally assessed as demonstrating knowledge of, and competence to operate the equipment and ppe associated with the substances handled in accordance with HSNO and the Health and Safety in Employment legislation through practical on-site demonstration to the employer, course provider or work supervisor, of safe work practices”
