GHS classification and labelling training

Monday, 13 May, 2013

Safe Work Australia is hosting a series of training and information sessions to raise awareness and understanding of the hazard classification, safety data sheet and labelling requirements for workplace chemicals in the model Work Health and Safety regulations, which incorporates the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS). The aim of these sessions is to enable participants to:

  • understand the GHS and what it aims to do;
  • learn the relationship with the GHS and hazard systems that have been used in Australia for nearly 20 years; and
  • learn how to translate current chemical hazard classifications to the GHS.

Training sessions are being held in most capital cities and in some regional centres as follows:

Darwin 15 May 2013
Canberra 28 May 2013
Melbourne 18 June 2013
Geelong 19 June 2013
Adelaide 2 July 2013
Perth 4 July 2013
Brisbane 10 July 2013
Townsville 11 July 2013
Newcastle 16 July 2013
Sydney 17 July 2013

Registration is essential and more information about the course is available on the GHS Training page.
