Why is This Man Exploding? 

The impact of the GHS on Industrial Hygiene and Safety

 

Adoption of the Globally Harmonized System for the Classification and Labelling of Chemicals around the world is happening very quickly. The GHS coupled with new approaches in chemical control like EU, Korea and China REACH is making information on the hazards and safe handling of chemicals more available and standardized. How will all the new information affect the practice of industrial / occupational hygiene? We will explore some of these important developments and how they can be used to make the lives of working people safer and healthier.
