Hazardous materials management

The Leading Practice Sustainable Development Program (LPSDP) for the Mining Industry promotes sustainable mining practices.

The program developed a series of handbooks which provide mining managers, communities and regulators with practical information on leading practice approaches to mining management.

This handbook includes guiding principles and leading practices in the handling and storage of hazardous materials through the mine life cycle. It focuses on occupational health and safety as well as environmental issues associated with hazardous materials including:

  • minerals
  • process chemicals
  • dangerous goods
  • radioactive materials and wastes.
