Have you purchased chemicals for use in your workplace? If so, you have a large number of responsibilities and obligations with which you must comply:
  • Having received an Safety Data Sheet from the product supplier, you must ensure that the safety data is accessible and available to all employees who might come in contact with the product.
  • Product storage and handling must comply with local regulations.
  • All employees must receive induction and training on chemical safety, and appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) must be available and used by all employees.
  • You must conduct a formal risk assessment of your raw material inventory and ensure products are safely stored and appropriately managed when not in use.
  • Subject to the type and amount of dangerous products in your workplace, you must ensure that placard and manifest requirements are satisfied.
  • You must conduct risk assessments for workplace processes involving hazardous chemicals.
  • If you are decanting hazardous chemicals, you must ensure compliant labels are available for all decanted products.
  • You may need an emergency plan to appropriately respond to accidental and uncontained spills.
