Dangerous drug safe Brisbane

by | Aug 11, 2013 | Advice & Tips

Queensland Health has legislation which outlines what a dangerous drug safe is made from and how the cabinet locks along with how it is to be anchored. These rules are enforced by Qld Health and they have inspectors whose job it is to ensure these dangerous drugs are in fact being stored as per the rules. Many of the drug cabinets (also known as drug cabinets or dangerous drug safes)  I have seen in Brisbane don’t comply mainly because they don’t have the correct key lock and tongue protector. The easiest way to tell if your drug cabinet complies is to check out the pictures below. We are also seeing a large number of chemists etc who are upsizing their old faithful because the number of dangerous drugs now required to be secured has increased and patch technology makes for larger boxes.

Another problem that arisen is the way dangerous drug cabinets MUST be secured to a wall or floor to satisfy the Health Dept, when the legislation was written they didn’t envisage that most chemists would have plasterboard walls and be in shopping centres. The  legislation does specify about solid walls and walls with solid studs but alas there is no mention of what to do when the walls are plasterboard and so the cabinet must be mounted to a concrete floor. This does get tricky when the floor is wooden and we do have a solution for this particular situation. We have 8 sizes of drug cabinet available on display at our Rocklea showroom (Brisbane southside), with the most popular size being 600 x 450 x 300 mm Height x width x depth. We can even build a stand that the drug cabinet can be fixed to to help support it.

The relevant pages from the Qld Health act are available to be viewed by clicking the link ( dangerous drug safe storage rules) at the bottom of the page. We can also make a dangerous drug safe or cabinet to a specific size, we recently built one to cater for 3 large Methadone bottles as well as all the other drugs the Pharmacy had to store. If you want to know more give us a call on 1300 556500.

I would HIGHLY recommend KGB Security. We have used them twice (so far) and... BOTH times have been a pleasure. They are extremely helpful, very professional and went above and beyond to ensure our matters were dealt with promptly. They are super friendly, easy to talk to and easily talk through steps over the phone. Their expertise was greatly appreciated!read more

Called KGB security about my heavy timber pivot door, to install a door damper... to stop it from slamming. Kel asked me to send photos of the door mechanism. He called back shortly thereafter to advise me that we have a door damper already, so no need to waste money for one. He taught me how to adjust the damper - 'tramsom closer'. It worked! My door doesn't slam any more. It only took me a few minutes and a screwdriver. He saved me lots of money. They are the most ethical and professional locksmith. I'm very grateful.read more

I cannot speak highly enough about this company!I have an old fireproof... cabinet that I was concerned about and gave KGB a call for some professional advice.Not only did I get information on the issue at hand, but I even got the contact number for someone that worked at the now long deceased company who could give me more detailed information.I would recommend them for anything to do with safes, cabinets or anything to do with security!read more
