Now Includes Globally Harmonizing System (GHS) of Classifying and Labeling Chemicals
GHS was adopted by the United Nations as a guideline to create a standard of classification on Chemical Hazards. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has adopted certain aspects of GHS into the newly modified Hazard Communication Standard. HazMat Solutions will customize our 8-hour onsite training for the Chemical Hazards at your facility.
GHS Pictograms, Labels and SDS
To ensure compliance with HCS, employers are now required to train employees on the newly revised HCS. All employers must insure that all employees are familiar with all changes to labels and SDS. Employees should understand how to use them and how to quickly access information. OSHA requires compliance of employee training to be completed by Dec. 1, 2013.
