Manifest means a written summary of the hazardous chemicals used, handled or stored at a workplace
Because we store, use and transport ‘hazardous chemicals and ‘dangerous goods’ on farm, the regulatory requirements for a manifest are quite specific.
We also store chemicals in ‘bulk’ so have extra requirements due to this. Even though some items may come and go in quantities, list them all on your manifest anyway to save you re-doing it all the time. (Bulk storage is defined as anything over 500 litres or 500 kilograms).
If you are transporting Dangerous Goods, there are also regulatory requirements you need to meet with a Manifest.
