The company is accused of five aggravated offences under section 31C(1) of the Dangerous Goods Act in relation to alleged chemical stockpiles at three warehouses in Craigieburn and two in Campbellfield.
At each site WorkSafe alleges the company knew, or ought to have known, that its failure to take all reasonable precautions to prevent any fire or explosion would likely endanger the safety or health of another person, property or the environment.
The charges are in addition to 35 already filed in the Melbourne Magistrates' Court in relation to the Campbellfield and Craigieburn sites.
The company, which is now in liquidation, has also been charged with three offences over an explosion and chemical fire at another Campbellfield warehouse in April 2019.
The latest charges have been listed for a further hearing in the Melbourne Magistrates' Court on 21 October 2020.
