GHS classification, SDS and labelling consultants
GHS classification, safety data sheet (SDS) and labelling consultants may be able to assist manufacturers and importers of hazardous chemicals with classification services, preparing compliant SDS and labelling containers in accordance with the globally harmonised system for the classification and labelling of chemicals (GHS). Hazardous chemicals are those chemicals that are classified as hazardous according to the GHS. A hazardous chemical must be correctly classified in accordance with GHS by the manufacturer or where imported, by the Australian importer. SDS must also be prepared for classified hazardous chemicals. Hazardous chemicals must also be correctly labelled in accordance with the GHS prior to being supplied to a workplace.
Storage and handling system consultants
Storage and handling system consultants may be able to assist a person conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU) by providing design, construction and commissioning services for new hazardous chemical storage and handling systems or compliance and auditing services for existing storage and handling systems (e.g. engineering advice and/or advice on compliance with Australian standards such as AS1940, AS1596, AS3780 etc.). These services may form part of an overall risk management strategy for a PCBU to safely manage hazardous chemical risks.
Note: Accredited auditors for electrical equipment in flammable hazardous areas
The Electrical Safety Regulation 2013 also includes requirements for connecting or reconnecting electrical installations/equipment in hazardous areas to a source of electricity, including the requirement for such an installation accredited by a hazardous area auditor. A list of these hazardous area auditors is maintained by the Electrical Safety Office.
