Hazardous Chemicals: GHS Classification and Communication

Duration: 35 mins


Description

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.
