OSHA webinar to help you get ready for upcoming GHS deadline
Employees must be trained on certain elements by Dec. 1
Still 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.
