The Leading Practice Sustainable Development Program is managed by a steering committee chaired by the Australian Government Department of Industry, Innovation and Science. The 17 themes in the program were developed by working groups of government, industry, research, academic and community representatives. The leading practice handbooks could not have been completed without the cooperation and active participation of all members of the working groups, and their employers who agreed to make their time and expertise available to the program. Particular thanks go to the following people and organisations who contributed to the Hazardous materials management handbook.
