GHS Awareness Training
The Global Harmonisation System is a United Nations created system for the Classification, Labelling and Safety Data Sheets for chemicals on a global basis. Its is often called GHS for short.
It is currently already in place in the USA, Canada, Europe, China, Japan, New Zealand and most of Asia – Australia is one of the latest countries to integrate the GHS system.
In Australia this new system which became mandatory on all chemicals sold from 1st January 2017 which must have the new GHS compliant labels and GHS formatted safety data sheets in place and supplied to customers who purchase these chemicals.
The regulation of the GHS system is contained within the WHS Regulations (Part 7 – Hazardous Chemicals) in Australia. The Regulations have impacts for all people who use chemicals in the workplace and these new requirements must be clearly understood including a duty to train employees in the new system and hazards.
Chem-Safe Australia have now completed their GHS Chemical Safety Awareness Course mapped alongside the new WHS Regulations and is available for on-site delivery across Australia.
The 4 hour Awareness Course Covers all aspects of the new system plus a detailed analysis of how this impacts Dangerous Goods regulation across storage, handling and transportation plus emergency response.
This course has already been tested and delivered to some of Australia’s leading companies.
Our on-site training can delivered throughout Australia at a cost of $275.00 per student with a minimum booking of 10 people which includes all travel costs into any location in Australia.
In 2018 we will also be delivering this course in the major cities of Perth, Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne against the dates in the attachment below.
Please enquire about these dates already planned for 2018.
