Hazard Communication and the Globally Harmonized System: Employee Training
Recent changes in OSHA's Hazard Communication Standard implemented the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) of hazard communication. GHS brings international consistency to the classification and labeling of all chemicals and improves an employee's ability to quickly understand critical safety information.
This video program will help employees understand the three key elements of the GHS: hazard classification, container labeling and safety data sheets. Topics include the written hazard communication plan, physical and health hazard classes, pictograms, signal words and other information found on GHS container labels and the 16 sections of a safety data sheet.
