Chemical management

Workplace hazardous chemicals are substances, mixtures and articles used in the workplace that can be classified according to their health and physiochemical hazards.

Chemical labelling

Information is provided in the University’s Working with Hazardous Chemicals and Dangerous Goods Guidelines for labelling of different types of hazardous chemicals. Labels can be obtained from ChemAlert. Non-hazardous substances also require labelling for identification purposes.

The below label and pictogram templates can also be used.
