Company charged over chemical stockpile at Campbellfield warehouse

The company allegedly responsible for stockpiling toxic chemicals in a Campbellfield warehouse last year has been charged by the dangerous goods regulator.

Bradbury Industrial Services was slapped with seven charges by WorkSafe Victoria after it allegedly breached the Dangerous Goods Act and failed to take precautions to prevent a potential fire or explosion at the warehouse, which contained more than 2 million litres of chemical waste.

The property is one of five warehouses in Campbellfield and Craigieburn that were found packed with drums and plastic containers filled with chemical waste in early 2019.

A separate property, Bradbury’s headquarters facility in Campbellfield, burned down after an industrial accident in April 2019. Over 175 firefighters battled the huge blaze, which sent plumes of toxic black smoke over neighbouring suburbs.
