Hazardous substances are substances that can cause a hazard to people and the environment because of their properties. To identify hazardous substances, the material properties must be determined by means of appropriate tests. Hazardous substances in operation and in storage are subject to specific legal requirements.
The safety data sheet is used to communicate the hazardous properties.
The label is used to contain the information on the packaging. Derived from the safety data sheet, the employees in the company must be provided in the workplace with the appropriate operating instructions. Employees must be trained before starting work. Before release in the company, a hazard analysis must be performed and the hazardous materials released for use. A variety of registration constraints exists worldwide for hazardous substances.
