Locations that contain, produce or handle significant quantities of dangerous goods or substances — where “dangerous” is carefully defined — can pose a significant risk to people other than those working within the site. The main risks are to firefighters called to deal with an incident at, or adjacent to, the site containing the dangerous goods, and also to people living or working close to the premises that may be affected during an incident, eg a fire, explosion or accidental release of dangerous substances.
