Occupational Health and Safety Act, 85 of 1995
Inclusion of new chemical onto the RL and CL OEL lists in the Regulations for Hazardous Chemical Substances.
As you may be well aware the Department of Labour is in the process of reviewing the Occupational Exposure Levels as per Table 1 (Control limits of hazardous chemical substances) and Table 2 (Recommended limits for hazardous chemical substances) in the Regulations for Hazardous chemical Substances (1995).
This is considered an optimal opportunity to consult stakeholders regarding inclusions of '
new" chemical substances into Table 1 (CL) and 2 (RL) that was not stipulated there previously. If you want to propose a chemical substance inclusion in the draft regulation please visit the SAIOH website and complete ANNEXURE A and return it to the Department of Labour on the contact details included.
Please return the proposals by 20 November 2015.
Note: not all proposals will automatically qualify for inclusion.
