According to OSHA, “implementing GHS will enhance worker comprehension, resulting in appropriate handling and use of chemicals” so the big question is do we know how to use GHS to make this a reality in our workplace or will we give GHS the same lip service that we gave to the old hazcom standard?

OSHA contends that “the primary benefit of the GHS is to increase the quality and consistency of information provided to workers”. While GHS may certainly be an improvement, we will definitely need to make certain that our training plans focus on more than just attempting to teach employees how to find information on the new SDS or we will be once again be giving the new standard “lip service”.

Join us for a presentation on how you can utilize some of the GHS components to provide your employees with training that really matters!
