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 is a 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.
The TEN modules in this course are:
Different Types of Hazard
Different Types of Exposure

Workers have an expectation to go home at the end of the working day not having been injured by
any workplace activity.
Most workers feel that accidents are something that only happens to other people.

laws and not working to safe systems of work.
