Data for hazard communication: SDSs, CLP and GHS

Over the years, we have been teaching courses related to product stewardship, and it has become evident that many course attendees often have limited knowledge of chemistry, toxicology or ecotoxicology. 

 The consequence of this is that it can be difficult to identify reliable and appropriate data as well as understand its significance in the context of SDS authoring, classification and labelling, and even chemical risk assessment work. 

 This event provides an overview of toxicology, ecotoxicology and physicochemical properties data in such a way to enable SDS authors, and chemical risk assessors to understand what the terminology means, how to evaluate the data and importantly, how it should be used. 

Examples will be used throughout to illustrate the theory.

What you will learn:

  • How the data is generated and useful data sources;
  • How to evaluate the quality and suitability of the data; and
  • How to interpret the data and apply it to  regulatory/SDS/risk assessment work.
