SAFETY TIPS: Using garden chemicals

  • Use the right chemical for the job you want done. 
  • Buy only the quantity you need and use the least amount possible. 
  • Avoid storing large quantities or mixtures of chemicals.  Don’t store incompatible chemicals, eg, nitrate fertilisers with chlorine. 
  • Read the safety information and follow instructions carefully. 
  • Always wear the recommended protective clothing and equipment, and wash hands and forearms after use. 
  • Keep chemicals where children can’t get to them, and don’t store them in soft drink or food containers. Dispose of unused chemicals safely.  
  • Don’t pour them down the sink or into the stormwater drain.
