The game and the exhibition introduce you to the history of the warning labels of the chemical substances and mixtures and to the new international CLP 2015 Regulation labelling and classification system.
The learning experience starts by purchasing an old lakeside cabin that needs to be fixed up for the summer. The cabin will be built up by solving the tasks related to the various chemicals.
The player learns to recognize the new pictograms, to use chemical substances safely and to contribute to the environmental safety.

More info about the project
The need of informing about warning labels and the safe use of chemicals results from the change in how chemical products are classified to identify hazards and changes to the information which is communicated to users of chemicals on labels and in safety data sheets (SDSs).
The CLP regulation implements the United Nations’ Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) in the EU. GHS is being adopted worldwide to improve and harmonise worker and consumer safety and facilitate global trade.
