Many Councils and workplaces use Glyphosate, as it is the only chemical product within the Australian market that controls such a wide range of broadleaf and grass weeds. At ChemCERT we believe, when applied within the safety instructions it should pose minimal risk to the applicator, community members and the environment.
Your ChemCERT auditor will review your use of Glyphosate and other Ag Chemicals by:
Reviewing relevant council policies
Reviewing current Standard Operating Procedures (SOPS)
Reviewing current Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS)
Observing employees in the workplace, including but not limited to, mixing, spraying, Personal protective equipment (PPE) use,
Observing and reviewing disposal of chemical process
Reviewing current depots, chemical storage, application of chemicals, equipment use, chemical manifests, compliance registers and record keeping.
