On June 7th & 8th 2017 IDC Technologies hosted the HAZCHEM Conference in Perth, Western Australia. The event covered chemical safety management and how to comply with the Globally Harmonised System (GHS).
The aim of this conference was to update everyone who comes in contact with hazardous chemicals on GHS implementation in WA. The event explored the variety of updates required and pre-empted the issues the introduction of the GHS would have on local businesses and industry. The event also aimed to ensure that delegates were aware of how to stay legally compliant with Australian and international laws and regulations.
The conference was made up of nine presentations, including two half day workshops from keynote speakers, Craig Watt, General Manager of Chem-Safe Australia; and Vince Pacecca, Chief Scientific Officer at ChemAlert & Risk Management Technologies.
