Certificate in OSHA Compliance

GHS for Hazard Communication

Newly revised to incorporate the GHS standard this course is a must for any organization with hazardous materials on premises.

Meet the Dec. 2013 compliance deadline.

OSHA’s recently released Hazard Communication Standard updates the 25-year-old regulation by incorporating the United Nations’ Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals, a system many stakeholders suggest will make it easier to classify and communicate hazards.

In this class you will learn:

  • GHS and the new Safety Data Sheet system
  • OSHA Hazard Communication 1910.1200 Subpart Z
  • Hazard communication programs
  • Labeling hazardous materials
  • GHS Deadlines and how they affect you.
  • Dec. 1, 2013
    Train all employees on the new label elements and Safety Data Sheet format.
