Please be aware of the dangers of keeping sanitiser in hot, enclosed areas, such as motor vehicles, as illustrated in this Safety Bulletin issued by Mondium:

Below are some recommendations for safe use and storage of sanitiser, as shared by WA mining regulator:

  • Keep hand sanitisers out of reach of children.
  • Keep containers tightly closed when not in use.
  • Keep away from heat, sparks, open flames, hot surfaces etc. No smoking.
  • Use hand sanitisers in a ventilated space – do not use liquid sanitiser inside confined spaces without plenty of ventilation when applying (e.g. inside cars without windows down).
  • Do not keep hand sanitisers inside cars during warm or hot weather.
  • Keep away from oxidising agents (e.g. granulated pool chlorine).
  • Hand sanitiser dispensers should not be placed above or close to potential sources of ignition, such as light switches and electrical outlets, or next to oxygen cylinders, due to the increased risk of vapour igniting.
