Each year, employers diligently prepare their lists of hazardous chemicals, gather MSDSs, and place them in yellow binders, trying to teach employees how to read and interpret the data. They believe 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 later this year, is introduced in the same fashion, because safety through osmosis will never work!

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