The Burden of Compliance
The time and cost burden on businesses that use Hazardous Chemicals and Dangerous Goods is significant. The number of regulations relating to Hazardous Chemicals, the complexity of them, and the potential financial and legal penalties. It can drive a business to despair.
As the GHS is rolled out around the world, the requirements placed on persons conducting a business or undertaking are changing. Whilst the core concepts of managing risks to health and safety remain intact, the way the necessary information is presented that enables health and safety professionals to understand and disseminate the risks is vastly different.
Persons Conducting a Business or Undertaking are typically required to identify hazards, apply and maintain a hierarchy of risk control measures and, in specified circumstances, review those risk control measures.
PCBUs also typically have obligations regarding labelling, safety data sheets and manifests, safe handling and storage of hazardous chemicals.
