Signs for COMAH Regulation sites

19 October 2016

For sites with high levels of hazardous substances and dangerous chemicals, the new Control of Major Accident Hazards (COMAH) Regulations came into force on 1st June 2015.

This is the introduction of the European Directive known as Seveso 111 in the UK. The main change involves the move from the CHIP (Chemicals – Hazard Information and Packaging to Supply) classification to the new CLP (Classification Labelling and Packaging) standards, which introduces the GHS (Globally Harmonised System).
The reclassification involves converting the substance inventories from the old to the new classification, as well as involving new additions such as pyrophoric solids and liquids, and flammable aerosols. These cover petrochemical, pharmaceutical, agrochemical, nuclear and explosives for on-shore sites.

In addition, all COMAH sites must make certain information about their sites and hazards in an electronic format for public access. This should include prevention policies, emergency plans, and methods of warning the public in the event of a major incident.
Label Source supplies a comprehensive range of GHS signs and GHS tapes, as well as hazard warning signs for chemicals and dangerous substances, which can assist in your risk assessment and training requirements. These signs can form an important component in the prevention of major accidents, and in limiting the effects if any such incident occurs.
