NEW LABELLING OF CHEMICALS POSES CHALLENGES FOR INDUSTRY

Australian industry is currently transitioning to the Globally Harmonised System for Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS), a new hazard-based communication system.

The GHS applies not only to a company’s products, but also any chemicals stored and used within the workplace such as cleaning agents, disinfectants and chemicals used in fire suppression systems.

With only 18 months remaining, now is the time for companies to refocus their attention on the transition to GHS classification and labelling.

Safety in Action, to be held in Melbourne in September, will feature a guest speaker from Chemical Safety International who will discuss the challenges and impacts business will face during the transition.

Mr David Clingin has worked for Chemical Safety International for more than nine years in various roles. He will offer insight and knowledge into Chemical Management and risk throughout an organisation.

Mr Clingin has in-depth knowledge of the Global Harmonised System (GHS) and has implemented effective policies and procedures reducing risks that hazardous and dangerous chemicals pose across numerous industries.

Informa’s Safety in Action Melbourne 2015 will be held at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre from September 15-17.
