This training will provide employers assistance in meeting the June 1, 2016 OSHA GHS Hazard Communication deadline as well as offer employers with the tools and resources they need to implement these changes and pass on the knowledge downstream.
The OSHA GHS rule, which took effect on May 25, 2012, is not a new standard but provides changes to the existing Hazard Communication Standard. OSHA provides a transition period for employers to comply with the new GHS HazCom Standard. The December 1, 2013 deadline has passed and now it is time to prepare for the June 1, 2016 deadline. The training will focus on workplace labeling, safety data sheets, the hazard communication program and employee training on the newly identified physical or health hazards.
Who does GHS Affect? GHS affects companies that manufacture or import hazardous chemicals; and downstream employers that acquire these chemicals from an outside supplier (as opposed to manufacturing or importing it themselves).
