Hazardous Substance Warehousing
Hazardous Substances vs Dangerous Goods
“Dangerous Goods” is the term used for transportation and is covered under the Land Transport Rule: Dangerous Goods 2005. “Hazardous Substances” is the term used once those goods are “on the ground” delivered, or in a warehouse or depot”, then they are covered under the HSNO Act 1996.

Incorrect warehousing of hazardous substances can lead to a penalty up to $500,000 fine and three months imprisonment. In addition you can also be fined under the Health and Safety in Employment Act as one New Zealand company recently was for the incorrect storage of sodium metal.
