COSHH, which stands for the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health, is the set of regulations that aims specifically to address the health issues of using hazardous substances in the workplace with its primary aim being to prevent ill health. COSHH covers the vast majority of substances and mixtures of substances, used or produced in the workplace that are potentially hazardous to health. The program covers the following areas: * How Hazardous Substances can hurt us * Classification and Symbols as per the Chemicals Hazard Information and Packaging for Supply Regulations (CHIP) * Substances covered by COSHH * What COSHH does not cover * The Requirements of COSHH Identification and assessment Precautions Monitoring exposure Health surveillance Information, Training and Supervision Arrangements on how to deal with accidents, incidents and emergencies that may occur COSHH supplies us with access to knowledge about hazardous substances that we use. Combining this knowledge with established safe work procedures is the best way we can avoid accidents, injuries and illnesses associated with the use of hazardous substances.

It’s aimed at anyone who is exposed to Substances Hazardous to Health at work, as well as line managers with responsibility for such people. So what do we mean by ‘Substances Hazardous to Health’? In legal terms, these are substances that are classified as “very toxic, toxic, harmful, corrosive or Irritant” under the Classification, Labelling and Packaging Regulation (CLP). This was a new regulation that came into force in January 2009 dovetailing with a set of regulations called REACH. REACH is a European Union regulation concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals, which came into force on 1st June 2007. One of the main aims of REACH is to provide a high level of protection for human health and the environment from the use of chemicals.

We changed the labelling of our products. The change is required by all EU Member States to meet the European regulation on classification, labelling and packaging (CLP) of substances and mixtures. The CLP Regulation ensures that the hazards posed by certain chemicals are clearly explained to workers and consumers in the EU through clear classification and labelling. The legislation will bring the EU into line with the United Nations' Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS). In time, this worldwide standard will replace the old European labelling systems. The new regulation means the symbols and the hazard wording on the paint labels will be different in style and there will be some new pictograms. If you would like to familiarise yourself further with the new CLP requirements, please visit http://echa.europa.eu/regulations/clp . Our Safety Data Sheets will show both types of classification until June 2015, but you can always check our website for SDSs and additional information if you are unsure. http://www.spieshecker.com/sds

MARCOM's "Understanding Chemical Hazards" HAZWOPER Safety Video Program assists facilities in complying with the employee training requirements of OSHA's HAZWOPER regulation (29 CFR 1910.120), and introduces employees to chemical hazard regulations and provides training on the various types of hazardous chemicals found in industrial environments. Hazardous materials and waste are part of many work situations, and can be found on many types of job sites. OSHA feels that it is so important for employees to know how to recognize these potentially dangerous substances (as well as how to handle and dispose of them properly) they have mandated that anyone working with these substances receive comprehensive training in this area. In 1976, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) to regulate the handling of hazardous waste "from cradle to grave". Since then other regulations have followed, including OSHA's 29 CFR 1910.120, also known as HAZWOPER. As part of these regulations, there are varying requirements for employee training, depending on an employee's specific level of involvement with hazardous materials. Areas covered in the program include chemical hazard concepts, types of hazardous chemicals, characteristics and effects of various types of chemicals, the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS), container labeling, safe handling practices, use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), spills and cleanup, and more. The safety video program comes with a comprehensive leader's guide, reproducible scheduling & attendance form, employee quiz, training log and training certificate. The Program can be used as the basis for approximately two hours of classroom training. The objective of MARCOM's "Understanding Chemical Hazards" HAZWOPER Video Program is to assist facilities in complying with the employee training requirements of OSHA's HAZWOPER regulation (29 CFR 1910.120), and to introduce employees to chemical hazard regulations and to provide training on the various types of hazardous chemicals found in industrial environments.

Every year, vast quantities of chemicals are sold and shipped, for use in workplaces around the world. And, with a global level of trade comes a need to ensure that the hazards pertaining to chemical products are clearly communicated - regardless of where in the world those products are being put to use. While national laws and regulations relating to chemicals may be similar, they are often different enough to require multiple sets of Labels, Safety Data Sheets, and other information when being traded internationally. All this creates the potential for confusion - which, when dealing with hazardous chemicals - could have disastrous consequences in the workplace. Developed at the UN level, the Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (or GHS for short) aims to develop a single, globally harmonised system to address: • Classification of chemicals, and • Hazard Communication, through: o Labels, and o Safety Data Sheets This program provides an overview of these elements as your workplace makes the transition to the GHS.

THE CLP REGULATION CLP stands for Classification, Labelling and Packaging. The CLP Regulation is a European Union regulation from 2008, which aligns the British system of classification, labelling and packaging of chemical substances and mixtures to the Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals or ‘GHS’. The CLP regulation aims to provide a logical and comprehensive approach to defining Physical, Health, and Environmental hazards of chemicals. The program covers the following areas: • CLP Hazard Classes, including: - Physical, - Health, and - Environmental • CLP Labelling • Pictograms • Signal Words, and • Safety Data Sheets It is true that there are many substances used in the workplace that are potentially hazardous to health BUT, it is also true that it is possible to work will all of these substances in a safe manner.

BOOK REVIEW EU CHEMICALS REGULATION New Governance, Hybridity and REACH By Steven Vaughan ISBN: 978 1 78471 130 6 (cased) 978 1 78471 131 3 (eBook) EDWARD ELGAR PUBLISHING LIMITED www.elgaronline.com www.e-elgar.com The book is available electronically in the Elgaronline Law subject collection DOI 10. 4337/9781784711313 AT LAST – A CLEAR AND SCHOLARLY EXAMINATION OF “REACH” IN EUROPEAN UNION ENVIRONMENTAL LAW An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers The author of this book, Steven Vaughan admits that ‘chemicals regulation is not one of the hot subjects in environmental law.’ It does not have quite the same cachet, he adds ‘as, say, climate change or environmental justice.’ However, as Vaughan points out in his succinct yet detailed introduction, chemicals and their regulation should obviously preoccupy us more than they do. There are more than 100,000 of them out there, chemicals we mean, some of which we eat, or breathe or absorb through our skin. They are a part of nature, yet some are hazardous. Over 40,000 of them may pose a minimal risk – hence the growing need for European Union chemicals legislation which aims to generate information about impacts and protection against potential harms. The EU has therefore adopted a number of legislative instruments aimed at the control of chemicals across a range of commercial sectors. The focus of this monograph, as the subtitle indicates, is on REACH – the EU Regulation on the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals, which came into force in 2007. Its regulator, ECHA is the European Chemicals Agency. REACH, says the author is a daunting piece of legislation ‘one of the longest legislative instruments in the history of the EU’ and ideally requires a familiarity with toxicology to fully understand it, which is why, as the author suggests, it has engendered little in the way of significant academic writing. This book therefore does much to fill that gap and deserves full marks for the clarity of its writing and explanation. Then there is the subject of hybridity which is explained in a number of ways, including the existence of public and private regulation. Primarily however, the book concerns itself with the yoking together of hard and soft norms as the result of a shift to ‘new governance’ which will be familiar to governance scholars at whom the book is partly aimed. There is little doubt that legal practitioners, (especially environmental lawyers), consultants, academics and policy makers will come to regard this book as an important and accessible explanation of REACH and also an useful starting point for further research on EU chemicals legislation. The publication date is cited as at 2015.

Manufacturers and formulators in the UK are being driven by two requirements when handling hazardous materials. The first is the need to ensure worker safety from the Chemical Agents Directive (CAD), implemented in the UK through the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations; the second is exposure assessment for manufacturers’, importers’ and down-stream users’ compliance under the REACH Regulation. Essentially Exposure Scenarios are the foundation for both REACH SDSs and CAD risk assessment. There are several IT tools now available that go beyond the simple control banding approach as exemplified by COSHH Essentials and give quantitative estimates of exposure in a number of different work place scenarios. The quantitative assessment tools are included in Chapter R.14 of the ECHA Guidance on Information Requirements and Chemical Safety Assessment, and are incorporated into chemical safety assessment. These tools have been evaluated in an EU-wide study entitled ETEAM (Evaluation of Tier 1 Exposure Assessment Models), which was endorsed by ECHA. Hosted by REACHReady, this webinar will be presented by Prof. Geoff Le Grys (Prefusion LLP) and Dr. Henri Heussen (Cosanta BV). Prefusion LLP is a REACHReady Approved Service Provider.

If you have been keeping up on the news, you know that there are plenty of toxic and hazardous materials that you come in contact with on a daily basis. Chances are you have come into contact with a toxic substance in the last hour. But what are toxic materials and how can you identify them within your home?Let’s start by defining what it means if something is toxic. Toxicity is the degree to which a substance can damage an organism. Toxic, hazardous chemicals can cause skin irritation, watery eyes, burns, poisoning, or even cancer. They can also harm local lakes, rivers, and drinking water supplies if disposed of improperly. Many household cleaners contain chemicals that are hazardous to your health and to the environment. Try not to buy products that contain any of the following words on their labels: DANGER! WARNING! POISON! TOXIC!These are "signal" words, and they indicate the product's risk to humans, pets and the environment. "Industrial strength" cleaners are overkill for most jobs around the house If you do choose to use toxic products, use and dispose of them properly and buy only what you need to avoid surplus that becomes a storage and waste problem later.You might be shocked to learn that there’s no federal regulation of chemicals in household products. Household cleaners and their ingredients do not have to meet any safety standards before going to market.That means that the cleaner you’re using could have anything in it!! Luckily, there are many less hazardous products are available at your local grocery store, such as natural dish soaps, toilet and drain cleaners, natural laundry detergent and degreasers. .Look for the EPA's Design for the Environment label on products. This label will help identify cleaning and other products that perform well and are safer for human health and the environment than traditional products.You can also make effective cleaners using simple ingredients from home. Try using equal parts water and vinegar to clean your windows, bathrooms, and kitchen.Have a clogged or slow drain? Use ¼ cup baking soda followed by a 1/2 cup of vinegar, cover and let it sit for 15 minutes, then flush with boiling waterThe less you come into contact with toxic materials, the safer you and your family will be. Instead of choosing a solvent-based paint, go with a water-based paint. Avoid using aerosol products as they can contain chlorinated compounds, petroleum distillates, phenols, and formaldehyde which pose inhalation hazards. Try to find pump sprays instead. Avoid pesticides!! You can plant pest and disease-resistant species of plants., Do some some research on what native, insects you can add to your garden that will rid you of pests. Lady beetles, green lacewigs and praying mantisis are some great options.If you bring in any motor oil, it will get recycled and used to make new oil products such asphault. Your old anti-freeze can be cleaned and re-used again as recycled anti-freeze. All those half cans and spray bottles of paint, stain, cleaner, and chemicals can also be brought in to be reused and recycled. If there is enough of the product left, it will be put into the Reused Program. This is a program designed to reduce the amount of hazardous and toxic waste that enters our landfills, and the best part is that it’s free!! Simply stop in to the Hazardous Material Management Facility and pick up what you need. Some of the things offered are cleaners, automotive, pool/spa, paints garden, fluorescent bulbs, photo and hobby products, rechargeable and lead acid batteries, 1lb propane cylinders and much much more!If you have a creative eye, make sure to take a picture of your project and enter the Reuse in Action contest.

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has vowed to make Better Regulation the cornerstone of policymaking in the EU, promising lean and efficient legislation that encourages business activity without compromising on health and environmental priorities. During this workshop, EURACTIV.com, with the support of Nickel Institute, examined how the proposed revision of the Carcinogens and Mutagens Directive (CMD) lives up to this promise. The CMD is one of the central elements of EU workplace legislation and is of extreme importance to ensure the health and safety of European workers. However, lengthy and fragmented decision-making processes risk overlooking the latest scientific findings and slow down the implementation of the envisaged measures. Following a vote in the European Parliament’s Employment Committee in February 2017 and ahead of the vote in Plenary, EURACTIV organised a stakeholder workshop to discuss the way forward on some of the most critical issues currently debated. Questions included: – How can the policy-making process be better streamlined? How to ensure the latest scientific evidence is taken into account? – Should the scope of the CMD be extended to substances with a reprotoxic classification? – How can the EU ensure a more efficient process for future occupational exposure limits to additional substances? – How to improve cooperation between the different Commission DGs, ECHA and stakeholders?Description

If you are going to send someone to evaluate or control an emergency involving hazardous materials, that person must receive training to do the job safely and intelligently. In Standard 472, the National Fire Protection Association recommends that hazmat responders receive the appropriate training for each of the following four levels: First Responder Awareness Level First Responder Operations Level Hazardous Materials Technician Hazardous Materials Specialist Hazmat Team should be trained to the "Hazardous Materials Technician" level defined by NFPA Standard 472. In addition to the NFPA standard, OSHA's Worker Protection Standards, found in 29 CFR 1910.120, require levels of training, medical surveillance, personal protective equipment, and emergency response plans (including the use of a site-specific incident command system).

The Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive 2002/95/EC, RoHS, short for Directive on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment, was adopted in February 2003 by the European Union. The RoHS directive took effect on 1 July 2006, and is required to be enforced and become law in each member state. This directive restricts (with exceptions) the use of six hazardous materials in the manufacture of various types of electronic and electrical equipment. It is closely linked with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE) 2002/96/EC which sets collection, recycling and recovery targets for electrical goods and is part of a legislative initiative to solve the problem of huge amounts of toxic e-waste. In speech, RoHS is often spelled out, or pronounced /ˈrɒs/, /ˈrɒʃ/, /ˈroʊz/, or /ˈroʊhɒz/, and refers to the EU standard, unless otherwise qualified. This video is targeted to blind users.
