The Dangerous Substances (Notification and Marking of Sites) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1992 requires any business that stores or uses dangerous substances above certain threshold quantities to notify the Health and Safety Executive for Northern Ireland (HSENI) and the local fire authority. The purpose of the regulations is to ensure that appropriate measures are taken to protect people and the environment from potential hazards associated with the storage and use of dangerous substances. The regulations apply to any business that stores or uses dangerous substances above the threshold quantities set out in Schedule 1 of the regulations.
The Dangerous Substances (Notification and Marking of Sites) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1992 require the operator of a site where dangerous substances are present above certain thresholds to notify the Health and Safety Executive for Northern Ireland (HSENI) of the existence of the site and provide certain information. The notification must include the name and address of the operator, the location and nature of the site, the type and quantity of dangerous substances present, and any additional information requested by the HSENI. The regulations also require the operator to ensure that the site is marked with warning signs, and to provide information to the emergency services about the nature and location of the dangerous substances. Evidence of compliance with these requirements may include notification forms, records of information provided to the emergency services, and documentation of the placement and condition of warning signs.
The Dangerous Substances (Notification and Marking of Sites) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1992 does not provide any explicit exemptions. However, it is worth noting that the regulations apply only to sites where dangerous substances are present in quantities that exceed certain thresholds, as specified in Schedule 1 of the regulations. Sites where dangerous substances are present in smaller quantities are not subject to the notification and marking requirements. Additionally, the regulations do not apply to certain types of dangerous substances, such as explosives and radioactive substances, which are subject to separate regulations.
