Each year employers diligently prepare their lists of hazardous chemicals, gather MSDS, place them in yellow binders, attempt to teach employees how to read and interpret the data convinced that these efforts will somehow make their workers safer and protect them from the risk of a fine or lawsuit. Unfortunately the same illusion will prevail if the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling, (GHS), scheduled to take effect in 2011 is introduced in the same fashion because safety through osmosis will never work!

We invite you to attend a seminar that will demonstrate how you can utilize the building blocks associated with the GHS to meet the intent of the OSHA standard and provide a safer workplace for your employees.
