Over deze vacature

There's never been a better time to join the Hazard Communication team of Philips Innovation Services. Industries and authorities of today increasingly demand globally compliant high quality Safety Data Sheets (SDS) and understanding of the growing complexities of safe transport of Dangerous Goods. Does being part of a company and a team that drives for meeting global compliancy standards and contributing to a safer and healthier environment today and future generations resonate with you and does it sound like something you'd love to be part of? If you feel that spark of excitement, if we trigger the perfectionist in you, then we'd love to hear from you! Together with a team of chemical safety experts you are responsible for maintaining and where necessary expanding Philips own chemicals management tool and database Fasim 2.1. Next to this, you function as a consultant to all our customers (internal as external) regarding any topic relating to the classification and labelling of chemicals (CLP and global GHS), global transport regulations such as ICAO/IATA, ADR, ADN and IMDG, occupational exposure measures as well as legal reporting obligations. You will also be playing an important role in potential client acquisitions, where you will demonstrate to the customers the usage and advantages of Fasim 2.1.

  • You research chemical data and are able to evaluate the reliability of the data
  • You are responsible for keeping up to date with global developments in the field of Hazard Communication
  • You are in close contact with suppliers of chemical products and assure constant up to date supplier documentation
