Tyre Storage Best Practice Guidelines Provide Clear Direction
Part of TSA’s remit is to help set industry standards in relation to the management, storage and disposal of end-of-life tyres. To that end, TSA has just published The Tyre Stewardship Australia Best Practice Guidelines on Tyre Storage and Fire and Emergency Preparedness.
Developed to provide tyre collectors and recyclers with a roadmap to compliance with the regulations and requirements relevant to tyre storage, they also highlight best practice methods for storage and fire and emergency preparation.
It is also important to note that implementation of these essential requirements should be undertaken with reference to the regulations and guidelines applicable in the relevant State or Territory.
In this financial year, the TSA will be looking to roll out information sessions around these Guidelines to ensure all participants can utilise these best practices to their full potential across their business. Further information regarding these sessions will be communicated in future editions of the eNews.
Whilst the guidelines focus mainly on the needs of tyre collectors and recyclers they may be used by any business that stores a significant number of tyres on a temporary basis.
The guidelines will help in:
Understanding Essential Requirements for complying with State regulations relevant to tyre storage.
Understanding environmental and OHS risks associated with tyre storage and best practice mitigation measures.
Understanding how to plan, design and operate facilities with best practice in tyre storage, fire and emergency preparation.
