Working Safely with Hazardous Substances | Complete Guide

Millions of workers across Europe handle hazardous CMR substances daily. But are you confident your company is doing everything to ensure their safety?
Navigating the complexities of CMR and REACH regulations can be a challenge, leaving businesses vulnerable to fines and, more importantly, potential safety incidents.
European and national guidelines on safe handling of hazardous materials are crucial for various businesses. Every company in the supply chain has a duty to provide and gather information for working safely with hazardous substances, from storage and handling to transportation and use. With safety increasingly prioritized (as seen by the rise of ESG and EHS departments), working with hazardous materials demands a proactive approach..

That’s why we’ve created a full guide that dives deeper into these regulations and best practices. This will help you minimize compliance risks and ensure the safest possible working environment for your employees, while also protecting human health and the environment in general.

Hazardous materials regulations

The legislation for working with hazardous substances is extensive, and sometimes guidelines from different authorities do not align. It is often unclear what measures to take to ensure safe working conditions. Our whitepaper offers an in-depth exploration of the complex regulations concerning CMR substances (carcinogenic, mutagenic, and reprotoxic substances) and the REACH regulation (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals).

You will receive a comprehensive overview of the requirements, guidelines, and best practices for safely handling, storing, and working with hazardous substances. From identifying CMR substances to complying with REACH regulations, our whitepaper provides valuable insights and strategies to meet legal requirements and maintain a safe working environment.

Safety data sheets hazardous substances

Temati communicates the legally required safety information of its products on the labels and safety data sheets. These comply with (EU and UK) regulations, and the SDSs are available for download in various languages on the website. Below is an example of a label for a Foster® product from Temati, displaying all mandatory elements, including hazard symbols and H-phrases in different languages. Most products containing hazardous substances are not classified as CMR.

Uniform safety symbols and classification

The United Nations’ GHS (Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals) was introduced to promote global uniformity in safety information and symbols, aligning them as much as possible with other standards such as ADR, IMDG. Despite its ‘global’ intention, differences still exist between various classification standards and national guidelines being used. Symbols or pictograms are employed to quickly recognize the key properties of hazardous substances in a product.
