According to OSHA, “implementing GHS will enhance worker comprehension, resulting in appropriate handling and use of chemicals”. OSHA further states that “the primary benefit of the GHS is to increase the quality and consistency of information provided to workers, employers and chemical users by adopting a standardized approach to hazard classification, labels and safety data”. So the big question is this, if as OSHA states, “implementing GHS will enhance your worker safety” then why wait for three years if you can do something about it today?

MAXCOM|GHS has already incorporated the use of the GHS Signal words, Pictograms, Hazard Statements, and Precautionary Statements into our workplace safety program. In addition MAXCOM|GHS also features formatted and simplified safe-use-guides which immediately inform your employees of the do’s and don’ts associated with any chemical in their workplace at a comprehension level most can actually understand.

Please join us as we demonstrate how we have utilized the building blocks provided within the frame work of the GHS to provide your employees with information and training about the hazardous chemicals they may be exposed to in a manner that they can comprehend.
