Hazardous Chemicals – GHS Classification & Communication

Course Outline:

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.
