As you probably know, your first OSHA compliance deadline with the new Global Harmonized System (GHS) classification system was December 1. We’ve still got a special deal going on from HSI brand family member Summit Training Source on a new GHS training package. Before the busy holiday season is in full swing and we all lose track of the time, get your courses lined up and take advantage of some special pricing. See side column for details.

GHS was created to provide a common, coherent approach to classifying chemicals and communicating hazard information on labels and safety data sheets across all countries and industries. It has been adopted by 65 countries so far, including the United States and Canada. With the goal of improving worker safety and the quality and consistency of hazard information in the workplace, adopting these new standards affects everyone at all points within the chemical cycle – from manufacture to distribution to use –by providing easily understandable information on appropriate handling and safe use of hazardous chemicals.

Making the transition to the globally harmonized system isn't just optional. OSHA requires employers to teach their employees about the new standards within two years, and to be in full compliance with the guidelines within three years. Let Summit Training Source help you with GHS training for employees providing instruction on requirements for labeling and SDS.
