Sign up for our newsletter, Chemicals Coffee Time

Our Chemicals Coffee Time newsletter comes out every Friday, and is like the sort of discussion that takes place around a coffee machine in the labs or at lunch in a chemical factory.

It’s a mix of useful chemical regulatory information (mainly around CLP, REACH, and what’s going on with Brexit),  chemical safety, interesting snippets about chemistry and science, and plenty of things to keep you cheerful like the weekend recipe, links to funny memes and videos.  A lot of our readers send in comments, news and jokes too.

The newsletter originally started as a way of keeping people in touch during Lockdown so its previous name was “Coronavirus Chemicals update”, and it’s evolved over time, although I’m quite glad it’s not a daily newsletter any more!

You can view some of the newsletter publicly, go to the newsletter page here:, find the right hand search box (which says “all posts”), scroll down and select “public newsletter”, and it’ll bring up the ones which are open access.

Our readers are mainly HSE managers and Regulatory Affairs specialists in the chemical and chemical-using industries.  Some people are working from home, and others are hybrid working or full-time back at work.

Thought I would just say that I really enjoy your newsletter – Chemicals Coffee Time is a great name.

I have and do sit down to read it albeit with a cup of tea rather than coffee. All through COVID and to present it has made me smile and I learn things that I didn’t know.

As you did we all used to take tea breaks from the lab – all congregating in the tea room with a tea lady making tea and all just talk for 10 minutes or so – Much better than a formal meeting

Thank You

It’s free to sign up to, and you can also get access to all the previous newsletters too, which are stored on this website!

If you’re a subscriber to CLP Mastery or the GHS Knowledgebase, you can access the email archive already.

If you’re already on our newsletter list, you can sign up to access the previous newsletters here as well (and you won’t get two copies, if our IT systems all work together properly!).

The newsletter archive has a full search function, so you can look for the topics which interest you.  There are some public articles as well, but to get access to everything, you need to be signed up on the website.

Looking forward to connecting with you.

Kind regards,
