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.

Expert Panel Host: McKay Jenkins • McKay Jenkins author of What's Gotten into Us?: Staying Healthy in a Toxic World and Poison Spring: The Secret History of Pollution and the EPA. McKay Jenkins has been writing about people and the natural world for 25 years. His most recent book, Poison Spring (Bloomsbury, 2014), co-written with E.G. Vallianatos, has been called a jaw-dropping expose of the catastrophic collusion between the Environmental Protection Agency [EPA] and the chemical industry.(Booklist, starred review) He is also the author of What’s Gotten Into Us: Staying Healthy in a Toxic World (Random House, 2011), which chronicles his investigation into the myriad synthetic chemicals we encounter in our daily lives, and the growing body of evidence about the harm these chemicals do to our bodies and the environment. Jenkins holds degrees from Amherst, Columbia’s Graduate School of Journalism, and Princeton, where he received a PhD in English. A former staff writer for the Atlanta Constitution, he has also written for Outside, Orion, The New Republic, and many other publications. Jenkins is currently the Cornelius Tilghman Professor of English, Journalism and Environmental Humanities at the University of Delaware, where he has won the Excellence in Teaching Award. “In the past few years, scientists have become increasingly worried about the growing presence of synthetic chemicals in our bodies, and in our environment — and the connection these chemicals may have to cancer, hormonal imbalances, and many other diseases. These are not just the toxins leaking out of industrial dumps — they are the chemicals leaking into us from the products we use every day: from cosmetics, cookware, and the fabric in our upholstery; from pharmaceuticals in our drinking water and the pesticides we spray on our lawns. I learned this the hard way. A few years ago, I discovered a surprise in my abdomen: a tumor the size of a baseball. An hour before I was to enter the operating room, researchers asked if I had ever been exposed to toxic chemicals. In my life, I asked? This seemed like an odd question. What kind of chemicals do you mean? The researchers began reading from a list, which turned out to be very long. Some things I had heard of, many others I had not. Formaldehyde? Weed killers? Glues? Dry cleaning fluids? Detergents? Lacquers? Flame retardants? Plastic meat wrap? Plastic meat wrap? Clearly, what I knew about my chemical exposure history was pretty vague. I decided to search for clues. My new book, What’s Gotten Into Us: Staying Healthy in a Toxic World, takes a clear-eyed look at the ways everyday things may be making us sick, and shows how we can protect ourselves by making wiser, healthier choices. It examines the way products are made and regulated (or, typically, not regulated); the way synthetic chemicals enter our bodies, and the latest research about what this chemical “body burden” may be doing to our health. It looks at our shopping habits, our drinking water, and our lawn care, and it ponders the ways advertising and marketing have blinded us to some pretty obvious problems.”

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. MARCOM's training products on "HAZWOPER: Understanding Chemical Hazards" introduce employees to chemical hazard regulations and provides training on the various types of hazardous chemicals found in industrial environments. Topics covered in these products 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 U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) and the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) are responsible for enforcing distinct and separate safety standards regarding the appropriate labeling of chemical hazards. Specifically, PHMSA’s Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR) and OSHA’s Hazardous Communication Standard (HCS) 2012 are the independent labeling requirements that communicate the dangers of hazardous materials (hazmat) in “transportation” (DOT), and in the “workplace” (OSHA).

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.

To ensure workers are provided with sufficient information to understand the hazards of the chemicals they work with, OSHA maintains a Hazard Communication Standard (HCS). The Hazard Communication Final Rule (HazCom 2012) is aligned with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals, or GHS, which provides standard criteria for determining chemical hazards to ensure different manufacturers and importers classify hazards similarly. This module will focus on the hazard classes defined by HazCom 2012.

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.

In 2012, the Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) (29 CFR 1910.1200(g)) was revised to require that chemical manufacturers, distributors or importers provide Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) (formerly MSDSs or Material Safety Data Sheets) to communicate the hazards of hazardous chemical products. The standard requires that as of June 2015, Safety Data Sheets be presented in a consistent user-friendly, 16-section format. To provide guidance to help workers who handle hazardous chemicals to become familiar with the format and understand the various sections, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) provides the following descriptions: • Section 1: Identification - Identification includes product identifier; manufacturer or distributor name, address, phone number; emergency phone number; recommended use; restrictions on use. • Section 2: Hazard(s) Identification - Hazard(s) identification includes all hazards regarding the chemical; required label elements. • Section 3: Composition/Information on Ingredients - Composition/information on ingredients includes information on chemical ingredients; trade secret claims. • Section 4: First-Aid Measures - First-aid measures includes important symptoms/effects, acute, delayed; required treatment. • Section 5: Fire-Fighting Measures - Fire-fighting measures lists suitable extinguishing techniques, equipment; chemical hazards from fire. • Section 6: Accidental Release Measures - Accidental release measures lists emergency procedures; protective equipment; proper methods of containment and cleanup. • Section 7: Handling and Storage - Handling and storage lists precautions for safe handling and storage, including incompatibilities. • Section 8: Exposure Controls/Personal Protection - Exposure controls/personal protection lists OSHA’s Permissible Exposure Limits (PELs); ACGIH Threshold Limit Values (TLVs); and any other exposure limit used or recommended by the chemical manufacturer, importer, or employer preparing the SDS where available as well as appropriate engineering controls; personal protective equipment (PPE). • Section 9: Physical and Chemical Properties - Physical and chemical properties lists the chemical's characteristics. • Section 10: Stability and Reactivity - Stability and reactivity lists chemical stability and possibility of hazardous reactions. • Section 11: Toxicology Information - Toxicological information includes routes of exposure; related symptoms, acute and chronic effects; numerical measures of toxicity. • Section 12: Ecological Information • Section 13: Disposal Considerations • Section 14: Transport Information • Section 15: Regulatory Information • Section 16: Other Information - Other information includes the date of preparation or last revision. Employers must ensure that SDSs are readily accessible to employees for all hazardous chemicals in their workplace.

The new bill reforming the 1976 Toxic Substances Protection Act passed the Senate last month, and is expected to become law in February. Environmentalists nationwide are concerned because it will prohibit States from imposing their own regulations while the EPA investigates potential threats from chemicals. The agency has been previously criticized as being far from prolific in its work. Alexey Yaroshevsky reports.

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.
