Classification Labelling Packaging (CLP) Training Course
Our CLP Training Course is ideal for those who may come into contact with hazardous chemicals. This course provides an understanding in the new Classification Labelling Packaging (CLP) Regulations.
In our modern world, we all use chemicals for very many purposes. Chemicals must be used in the way they were intended to be used, and it is vital that labels on containers and accompanying documentation instruct us how to use and store the chemical appropriately. From 1st June 2015, Classification Labelling Packaging (CLP) replaced CHIP (the Chemicals Hazard Information and Packaging for Supply) Regulations 2009.
This course raises awareness on what CLP regulations are, why they are important and the hazard symbols that are essential to know when using chemicals for your own health and safety. If you are using chemicals that may be hazardous, it is important that you are knowledgeable in how to handle them safely. Understanding the definition behind the GHS pictograms is also of high importance. Without this knowledge, it can be difficult to determine how hazardous a chemical may be, or other risks that it holds.
