Australia has been phasing in the new Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals, or GHS, for the last five years and this transition period ends on 31 December 2016.
SafeWork has produced a video to assist businesses to comply with the changes.
This video steps businesses through how to comply with the new requirements and describes:
- what the GHS is and who it affects
- the benefits of the new system
- the changes you will see on workplace chemical labels and safety data sheets
- how manufacturers, importers and suppliers can implement the GHS, and
- how workplaces can prepare for the new system.
Do you need further help with your chemical labelling requirements?
We’ve made an easy to read factsheet that not only details chemical requirements but electrical and noise.
Our consultants love to have a chat, so go ahead and give us a call on 1300 OHS RTW (647 789) or email firstname.lastname@example.org
