GHS Training For Results

This webinar occured on:  January 16, 2013

According to OSHA “implementing GHS will enhance worker comprehension, resulting in appropriate handling and use of chemicals” so the big question is how will this monumental event happen in your workplace?

Most companies are focusing on the December 1, 2013 deadline requiring employers to train employees on the new SDS format, GHS labels, pictograms and other GHS components. After all this time we are still missing the entire point of the exercise which according to OSHA is;

“Employers shall provide employees with effective information and training on hazardous chemicals in their work area at the time of their initial assignment, and whenever a new physical or health hazard the employees have not previously been trained about is introduced into their work area”.

(Note the rule clearly states that your information and training must be effective!)

OSHA further states; “Information and training may be designed to cover categories of hazards (e.g., flammability, carcinogenicity) or specific chemicals”.

We invite you to join us for a webinar that focuses on providing effective information and training for each GHS class of chemical employees may be exposed to in their specific work area or job function.
