RPMASA I-day Introduction to GHS and Understanding Hazardous Communication @ Kingfisher Conference Centre, Mt. Edgecombe
Mar 8 all-day

Invitation to training – RPMASA I-day Introduction to GHS and Understanding Hazardous Communication 

NEXT DATE – 8 MARCH 2017 – Kingfisher Conference Centre, Mt. Edgecombe – BOOK NOW to secure your place

Are you GHS compliant – What does it mean to YOU and YOUR Business? The GHS is Global and Local best practice AND a Legal requirement.

Exporters take note that the GHS became mandatory from 1 June 2015 in Europe + many other Countries around the world, ALL SDS & labels must comply – are your SDS and Labels Compliant?

The GHS is also coming fast locally – It falls under a number of different Regulations – the Dept. of Environmental Affairs, Waste Classification Regulations, came into effect in January 2015, requiring GHS classification of waste, with GHS compliant Safety Data Sheets! It is being incorporated into the Dept. Labour OHS Act Hazardous Chemical Substances Regulations, the Dept. Health, Hazardous Substances Act for Group 1 and 2 chemicals, as well as Dept. Agriculture for SDS and Labels.

The 1-day Introduction Course will demystify the confusion surrounding implementation of the GHS both in South Africa and Internationally. It is facilitated by Liz Anderson, who represents RPMASA on the UN Committee of Experts for the Transport of dangerous goods and the GHS.

It is recommended to give a solid understanding to representatives from Industry and Government, particularly Management, Supervisors from Operations – factory and logistics who have OHS Act responsibilities for their people, Technical, SHEQ, RISK, Marketing, HR & Communications.

This course answers key questions: –

  • What is its purpose?
  • Is it best practice or a legal requirement?
  • Who, and What sectors does it impact on?
  • Is it for industry and/or retail?
  • What impact does it have on transport placards & labeling and How does it differ from transport classification?
  • How do I start GHS classification?
  • SA and SADC position.
