FOr the vast majority of our Scottish users, this is not an issue. We are aware, however, that some of the independent schools do follow the English curriculum: with GCSEs and A-levels. Much of the documentation for these courses specifically references CLEAPSS Hazcards in the H&S information. There is generally very little difference in the actual information SSERC and CLEAPSS provide but if you are given a particular reference to follow, it can be annoying to then have to work out where to find the information in another source. (A similar issue can arise for some RSC resources that reference CLEAPSS Hazcards.).
To help out, we have produced a ‘translation’ document. It is a PDF list of all the Hazcards with clickable links to take you to the relevant page on our website for the information you need. You can download it here – Hazcard References
