BAMA Fact Sheet - Transport of Aerosols by road, sea & rail
All aerosols, flammable or not, are classed as 'dangerous goods' and therefore have a unique UN number. Virtually all are transported as 'limited quantities' for transport purposes. The fact sheet outlines what is and is not legally required for transport of aerosols in limited quantities by road, rail and sea. Key changes affecting aerosols in ADR 2009 are covered. Full details for transport of aerosols in all the modes are available in the latest edition of the BAMA Guide to the International Transport of Aerosols.
BAMA Warehousing Guide
This Guide presents requirements and guidance for the storage of aerosols. It includes storage of finished goods at the aerosol factory as well as in a warehouse for the purpose of distribution.
Practical Guidance on Assessing the Risk of A VCE in an Aerosol Warehouse
Following the Buncefield fire in 2005 which was caused by a large Vapour Cloud Explosion (VCE), the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) commissioned a number of pieces of work to look at other possible risks that might have been overlooked. One of these was a study carried out by the Health and Safety Laboratory (HSL) to consider risks from fires in large aerosol stores. The study identified the possibility of a VCE resulting from the accumulation in the warehouse of un-ignited flammable gases and vapours. The study led to considerable discussion between HSE, HSL and BAMA about the risk of such an event. The outcome of this discussion was the confirmation that the likelihood/risk is very low, but that a systematic assessment of each warehouse is needed to document assumptions. This BAMA Guide aims to provide companies storing aerosols with a tool to help to eliminate the possibility of a VCE from their warehouse.
