Chemical labels are changing – How will this affect you ?  (19/08/2013)

Catalóg N. : KE-30-13-227-EN-C

Over the next few years, the EU chemical Classification, Labelling and Packaging Regulation (CLP) is changing how chemical products are classified to identify hazards. This will result in changes to the information which is communicated to users of chemicals on labels and in safety data sheets (SDSs). People working with chemicals must adapt to these changes, and this document will act as practical guidance. Specifically, it will explain how these changes will affect your responsibilities under various EU worker protection directives (chemical agents directive, carcinogens and mutagens directive, safety signs directive, pregnant workers directive and young people at work directive).


Chemicals at work – a new labelling system - Guidance to help employers and workers to manage the transition to the new classification, labelling and packaging system.  (09/08/2013)

Catalóg N. : KE-30-13-226-EN-C

Over the next few years, new legislation known as the CLP regulation is changing how chemical products are classified to identify hazards, and how this information is communicated on labels and safety data sheets (SDSs). This document is intended to provide practical guidance to employers and workers on how the directly acting CLP regulation (Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 on the Classification, Labelling and Packaging of Substances and Mixtures) will affect the following worker protection directives: • chemical agents directive (98/24/EC); • carcinogens and mutagens directive (2004/37/EC); • safety signs directive (92/58/EEC); • pregnant workers directive (92/85/EEC); • young people at work directive (94/33/EC). These directives have been implemented in the national legislation of each Member State. Information on this legislation and general guidance on how to comply will normally be available from the authorities responsible for occupational health and safety in each Member State. This publication is available in printed format in English, French and German.


Minimising chemical risk to workers' health and safety through substitution  (19/12/2012)

Catalóg N. : KE-30-12-758-EN-N

This report presents the results of a study on the practical implementation of substitution of hazardous chemicals, as an occupational health and safety risk management measure, in workplaces across the EU. Funded by DG Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion, the publication examines if there is a need for an EU-wide common guidance on substitution, with results indicating that such a document would be welcome. It recognises that various approaches to substitution – as well as challenges to these approaches – exist, and there-fore the bulk of the report focuses on developing a common approach to substitution and presenting it as a guidance document. This publication is available in electronic format in English.
