Do you know how to classify to GHS?
Are your SDS and product labels GHS compliant?

What is the GHS and 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 came into effect in SA in January 2015 under the Dept. of Environmental Affairs, Waste Classification Regulations for classification of waste and GHS compliant Safety Data Sheets!.  It will also come into effect soon under a number of different Regulations primarily the Dept. Labour OHS Act – Hazardous Chemical Substances Regulations, plus the Dept. Health, Hazardous Substances Act for classification of Group 1 and 2 chemicals, as well as Dept. Agriculture for SDS and Labels.

The 2-day Advanced course is the next step for Technical, SHEQ and RISK Management Professionals who are responsible to classify their products, create Safety Data Sheets, and GHS compliant labels, as well as conduct workplace Risk Assessments. It is also helpful for Research and Marketing personnel who are involved in formulating products to understand the new labelling requirements.
