As we move into a global economy, clear communication becomes a necessity for companies. Give your employees the basic information about the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) for Classification and Labeling of Chemicals. Teach them how GHS differs from the Hazard Communication Standard. This program covers the new labeling requirements, the GHS label elements and the different sections of the Safety Data Sheets.
OSHA's Position On Global Harmonization System GHS Training
One of the primary advantages of our modern technology is the advanced ability to communicate between different business and government entities. Thus, the need to address the changes related to Global Harmonization through areas such as the Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). OSHA’s position on this subject involves the training of all appropriate employees where the GSH Standards are applicable. Here, it’s extremely important to note that GSH is different than the previous Hazard Communication Standard and these differences involve new requirements when it comes to labeling hazardous chemicals. Employees should also be trained in sections of Safety Data Sheets and GHS label elements that apply to their specific work areas.
OSHA compliance topics covered in our training materials include:
- The definition of the Globally Harmonized System (GSH)
- The details of OSHA’s adoption of GSH
- Details of the “Safety Data Sheet”
- Container labeling and other related GSH topics.
The training subjects, that we present, can be obtained in both English and Spanish and are even available in an interactive format. In any company situation in which employees are either working with or working in close proximity to hazardous chemicals/materials, there is a need to be compliant with the new OSHA labeling regulations. Failure to do so may result in a significant penalty, so it just makes sense to protect your company and your employees by having the necessary training materials available at your business location as soon as it’s feasible.
