Dangerous goods
Dangerous goods are substances that may be corrosive, flammable, explosive, spontaneously combustible, toxic, oxidising, radioactive, biological, water reactive or gases under pressure or liquefied.
Fuels such as petrol and Liquefied Petroleum/Propane Gas (LPG) provide by far the largest volume of dangerous goods, and many industries and even homes may contain these and other types of dangerous goods.
