Over the last several years, OSHA updated its Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) to conform with the United Nations' Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). The GHS's international approach to hazard communication provides American businesses with criteria for the classification of chemical hazards and a standardized approach to label elements and safety data sheets, according to OSHA. Based on major existing systems around the world, including OSHA's HCS and the chemical classification and labeling systems of other government agencies, the GHS was negotiated over many years by hazard communication experts from around the world.

Navigating the complexities of the new OSHA GHS Standard can be complex, especially when dealing with multiple chemical hazards and chemical warning labeling requirements in a plant. This course will clearly spell out the new OSHA GHS Standards as it applies to your organization.

The course will talk about the GHS training that is required, the new warning labels with pictograms, and discuss in detail the new Safety Data Sheet (SDS) Format. The course will answer site-specific questions and address site-specific concerns as it pertains to the new GHS Standard.
