Bringing Australia’s Hazardous Chemicals Management into line with Global Standards
Last Friday 10 January 2020, Safe Work Australia agreed to adopt the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) Revision 7 under the model WHS laws for workplace hazardous chemicals.
The two most significant changes will be:
Updated precautionary statements – which appear on product labels and Safety Data Sheets (SDS).
Removing the requirement for the label of a hazardous chemical to disclose the identity and proportion of each ingredient.
