Science Industry Australia Events
GHS workshops coming again in 2016
Dates to be advised
Science Industry Australia and the Australasian Laboratory Managers Association (ALMA) will be hosting a series of workshops around Australia during 2016. These workshops will provide attendees with knowledge they need with regards to application of the Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals under Australian Work Health and Safety legislation.
Why should you attend?
Many products currently classified as 'not hazardous' under the old NOHSC Approved Criteria will change to 'hazardous' according to GHS criteria under the WHS Regulations. So even though there is a 5 year transition period, GHS classification and labelling will be mandatory after 1 January 2017, and that's only a year away!
These workshops are designed for staff charged with the responsibility for signage, labelling and storage of a range of chemicals in all forms. They are suitable for suppliers, end users and anybody responsible for conforming with workplace safety
