Flammable Refrigerant Safety Guide
This is an industry guide on managing the health and safety risks associated with the safe design, manufacture, supply, installation, conversion, commissioning, operation, maintenance, decommissioning, dismantling and disposal of refrigeration and air conditioning equipment and systems that use a flammable refrigerant. This industry guide is required because of the increasing demand for flammable refrigerants due to their low-GWP characteristics. Hydrocarbon refrigerants are broadly available in Australia and various flammable synthetic fluorocarbon refrigerants are available, or are expected to be available, in the near future.
This industry guide applies to anyone who has a duty of care in the circumstances described. Like regulations, industry guides deal with particular issues and do not cover all hazards or risks which may arise. The health and safety duties require duty holders to consider all risks associated with work, not only those for which regulations, codes of practice, and industry guides exist.
