July 16, 2013

GHS_300px.jpgStill a bit confused about what’s expected of your company with regard to that OSHA GHS deadline that arrives Dec. 1st?

The agency and the Society of Chemical Hazard Communication Alliance will present a webinar on the subject on July 25th at 1:30 p.m. EST.

The webinar, entitled, "Hazard Communication: 1 Year of Implementation," will cover the training needed to meet the first part of the implementation phase that aligns U.S. hazard communication with the United Nation’s Globally Harmonized System (GHS) of classification and labeling of chemicals.

Employers are required to train workers on the new label elements and safety data sheet by Dec. 1st. Webinar attendees will be able to ask questions about implementation, get information about available guidance and get an update on GHS international efforts.

Register for the webinar at http://www.schc.org.

Not able to attend? OSHA has prepared a number of additional materials that explain the new changes to the requirements of the HCS, including QuickCards, a training fact sheet (PDF*), a list of frequently asked questions and a brief (PDF*) on labels and pictograms. These and other materials are available on OSHA's Hazard Communications page.
