People who come into contact with hazardous chemicals at work need to know how to minimise the risk of harm to themselves, their co-workers, the general public and the environment. The Globally Harmonised System of Classification & Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) has been developed by the United Nations and adopted by the Australian Work Health and Safety Regulations and Codes of Practice. The GHS provides a framework for standardising the methods used for classifying and communicating chemical hazards. This training resource provides an in-depth review of the updated hazard communication standards that play a role in minimising the risk of harm from chemicals at work.
Topics covered in the programme include: Hazard Classification; Hazard Communication; GHS Pictograms; Labels; and Safety data sheets. 22 minutes.
