3 KONFEDERASI SERIKAT PEKERJA INDONESIA Current Issues- GHS implementation will have significant impacts on manufacturers and suppliers of chemical products and subsequently on users of chemical product.- Chemical product is using in many aspect in workplace, worker may be the most at risk of exposure to chemical hazards and can be directly affected by chemicals accidents and over exposures to the point where lives can be in danger. Worker has important role in production, handling, storing and transporting chemical and dangerous goods.
4 KONFEDERASI SERIKAT PEKERJA INDONESIA - Worker need to know the hazardous materials specification to the chemical used and or handled properly as well as information about the specific protective measures required to avoid the adverse effect that might be caused by those hazard. The tool most commonly used for providing this information is the labeling and Safety Data Sheets (SDSs).
5 Labeling and Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) KONFEDERASI SERIKAT PEKERJA INDONESIALabeling and Safety Data Sheets (SDSs)- The labeling should keep user informed about potential physical, health and environmental chemical hazards of the product & basic advice on using the chemical safely.- SDSs should be able to provide comprehensive information about chemical substance or mixture to use in workplace setting. SDSs is resource that enable employer to undertake worker and environmental protection activities, including training that are specific to the individual workplace.
6 The direct influence of same format labeling & SDSs KONFEDERASI SERIKAT PEKERJA INDONESIAThe direct influence of same format labeling & SDSs- Will improve safety for workers & other through consistent and simplified communications on chemical hazards and practices to follow for safe handling and use.- Will make awareness of hazards, resulting in safer use of chemicals in the workplace and in the home.
