HSE, or Health, Safety & Environment. Literally “Health, Safety and Environment,” the acronym refers to all those systems or people who are dedicated to the safety of people and the environment in business.
Health, Safety & Environment
The acronym HSE goes along with the different professional figures. For example, the HSE Specialist deals with solving problems that affect the safety of the working environment, in terms of workers’ health and environmental protection, while the HSE Manager is the professional figure responsible for organizing and defining a business strategy that anticipates security risks.
Similarly, the concept of Health, Safety & Environment can be applied to regulatory compliance, going to all those regulations that affect health, safety and environment.
Every company is required to comply with HSE regulations, and companies working with chemicals in particular must handle this carefully, as they must also implement the GHS regulation.
GHS: Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals
Companies working with chemicals must comply with GHS regulations.
“Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals,” the GHS is an internationally agreed standard administered by the United Nations created to standardize patterns of classification and labeling of hazardous materials.
In fact, for chemicals, there are specific regulations governing their handling and the documentation attached to them in order to use, transport and place them on the market.
All this in order to protect Safety, Health and the Environment. This is why the GHS regulations for chemicals fall under the broader area of HSE complicity.
How to manage chemicals: regulatory compliance
To maintain HSE compliance when working with chemicals, it is important to adhere to all the directions of the GHS standard. In practice, this means that for every hazardous substance that you use, transport or trade, you must:
- Classifying the danger
- Drafting a Safety Data Sheet (SDS)
- Print compliant hazard labels
- Forwarding the IPA notification to the Poison Control Center
Software that automates processes while ensuring regulatory compliance can be used to facilitate these processes and ensure HSE compliance when dealing with chemicals.
