Hazardous Chemical Substances

What hazardous chemicals should be included in the HCS register in OHS Online?

Simply put, all your hazardous chemicals should be included on the HCS register. This includes chemicals which you may use on a large scale, such as oils, greases, fuels (petrol, diesel, etc) or solvents (white spirits, hexane, benzene, etc). Laboratories and chemical plants would include acids, bases, oxidising and reducing chemicals, etc. 

However, this also needs to include your common, everyday cleaning chemicals, such as toilet cleaners, bleach, soaps, etc. These chemicals are often overlooked because they are general household chemicals, however, they are still chemicals and they are still hazardous in nature.
