Safe Work Explains new Hazardous Chemical Labelling Requirements

To help smooth the transition to the globally harmonised system  (GHS), Safe Work Australia has announced that chemicals manufactured or imported before January 1st, 2017 will not need to meet Work Health and Safety Regulations’ labelling requirements before being supplied.

Safe Work’s CEO Michelle Baster explained that the concerns raised by chemical suppliers in the lead up to Australia developing a GSH for chemical labelling had been heard, which resulted in the new approach.

The new approach will help avoid unnecessary burden on suppliers to re-label existing chemical stock.
