OSHA's Global Harmonizing System (GHS) Overview
OSHA's Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) has been updated to bring the United States into alignment with the Global Harmonizing System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). These changes are expected to prevent injuries and illnesses, improve communication, save lives, and improve trade conditions for chemical manufacturers. Major changes include the hazard classification of chemicals, new label requirements, and replacement of MSDSs with Safety Data Sheets (SDS) having 16 specific sections.
This seminar will provide an overview of the new HCS requirements, briefly addressing:
- The history of GHS
- Benefits to industry and employees
- The specific major changes
- Compliance dates and issues
NEW! GHS - Implement and Manage
OSHA has finalized its new Hazard Communication (HazCom) Standard, aligning it with the Global Harmonization System (GHS) for Classifying and Labeling Chemicals. The new standard affects over 40 million employees at more than 5 million facilities nationwide. Substantial changes have been made to the existing OSHA HazCom Standard. Employers must learn new chemical classification criteria, determine how to replace ALL MSDSs with new Safety Data Sheets (SDSs), update or replace chemical labels, and train all employees on the new HazCom rules by December 1, 2013.
During this four hour seminar you will learn how to implement and manage OSH!'s HazCom 2012 standard, also known as the workers' “Right to Understand,” and strategize on ways to effectively modify and implement your company's updated HazCom program. This seminar will involve hands-on scenarios that will compliment your newly developed strategies and modifications.
