Chemical hazard awareness training

Anyone using or handling hazardous goods should be suitably trained to be aware of the potential risks involved and how to recognise them. Recent changes to hazard label legislation (CLP) means that a whole new suite of warning labels are filtering through into the marketplace.

Staff should be aware of what the new images mean, and our course will give them the knowledge.  We will also give them an understanding of storage, safe handing, PPE, product segregation and spill response – practical spill response can also be included, if required.

Course content

  • Understanding Safety Data Sheets (SDS)
  • Recognising and understanding the new CLP labelling protocols
  • PPE
  • Storage
  • Reactivity
  • Incident Response
  • Practical Response (optional)

CLP training

European Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 on classification, labelling and packaging (CLP) of substances and mixtures came into force on 20 January 2009 in all European Union (EU) Member States, including the UK. It is known by its abbreviated form, 'the CLP Regulation' or just plain 'CLP'.

The EU CLP Regulation adopts the United Nations' Globally Harmonized System of the classification and labelling of chemicals (GHS) across all EU countries, including the UK, when the UK was an EU Member State.

As GHS is a voluntary agreement rather than a law, it must be adopted through a suitable national or regional legal mechanism to ensure it becomes legally binding.

The EU CLP Regulation as amended, is retained in GB law. These arrangements mean that Great Britain continues to adopt GHS, independently of the European Union.

In order for GB CLP to operate fully and effectively in Great Britain, the EU CLP Regulation has been amended. This means there are changes to the requirements or allowances in existing processes and procedures.

CLP incorporates REACH therefore it will be the classification and labelling protocol under REACH.

Course content

  • Background of GHS and CLP
  • CLP versus DPD/DSD
  • The requirements of CLP legislation explained
  • Help with understanding the classification system and calculation methods
  • The dates when you need to comply by
