Module 19, CLP Labelling

Closing Date For Registrations: 22 May 2020 (midnight)

The supply label is the primary means by which handlers and users of products are made aware of the hazards to their health and the environment. Following on from the classification of substances and mixtures, it is imperative that products are correctly labelled.

This module covers the EU label elements including pictograms, signal words, hazard statements and precautionary statements. Delegates will be shown how to pull these elements together into a label which is compliant in content and format. The module will also cover rules for affixing of labels, language, tactile warning devices, updating of labels and packaging requirements.

Who Should Attend

This module is mainly aimed at those responsible for ensuring that supply labelling is compliant and Safety Data Sheet writers.

It is recommended that delegates also attend Module 16 (CLP Classification) (more details to follow) to gain a complete understanding of CLP.

Benefits Of Attending?

Attendance on this series of modules will ensure that your SDSs and labels meet the increasing expectations of both your customers and the regulators. To ensure the most effective training with optimum involvement in participative exercises, there will be a limit of 14 on the number of students.

IOSH members are entitled to include this module in their continuing professional development records.

                        Module Presentation

                        We will deliver this training using online presentation software, which we have used successfully for other CHCS events and training. You can use the software, free-of-charge on Windows, Macs, smartphones and tablets.

                        The sessions will run live and delegates can interact with the tutor and other delegates using their device microphone. The tutor will use a PowerPoint presentation, just as they would in face-to-face training. We will provide you with copies of the presentation and all other supporting documentation in advance of the training, by email.

                        Module Tutor

                        Louise Witter BSc (Hons), LL.B has been working in the field of general quality, health, safety and environment for 19 years and specializes in SDS production. She has taught SDS producing staff within all of the major production chemical companies servicing the oil and gas industry as well as general chemical majors, small businesses and universities. She has also been approved to instruct in the safe carriage of dangerous goods by the Civil Aviation Authority, Department for Transport and Scottish Qualifications Authority.

                        EU Brexit

                        The 'Brexit' outcome from the June 2016 referendum is unlikely to affect the importance of compliance with EU legislation on classification and safety data sheets. As is the case now, businesses supplying chemicals in other EU Member States or in the European Economic Area will continue to have to comply with European law. The future requirements on those supplying chemicals only in the UK may only become certain when the terms of the exit have been agreed, however UK legislation is expected to remain aligned to EU legislation, at least in the short term.
