HAZCOM: Globally Harmonized System (GHS) Training Material

OSHA's HAZCOM Standard has changed....Are you ready?

In 2012, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) revised the Hazard Communication Standard (29 CFR 1910.1200) bringing the United States into alignment with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS), further improving safety and health protections for America's workers. Building on the success of OSHA's current Hazard Communication standard, the GHS is expected to prevent injuries and illnesses, save lives, and improve trade conditions for chemical manufacturers. The Hazard Communication Standard, which was implemented in 1983, gave workers the "Right-to-Know"; but the new Globally Harmonized System gives workers the "Right-to-Understand".

The new Hazard Communication standard still requires chemical manufacturers and importers to evaluate the chemicals they produce or import and provide hazard information to employers and workers by putting labels on containers and preparing Safety Data Sheets. However, the old standard allowed chemical manufacturers and importers to convey hazard information on labels and Material Safety Data Sheets in whatever format they chose. The modified standard provides a single set of harmonized criteria for classifying chemicals according to their health and physical hazards and specifies hazard communication elements for labeling and Safety Data Sheets.

It is the employer's responsibility to train employees on the new standards and to ensure the employees adhere to the new elements of the label and SDS format. The Globally Harmonized System (GHS) Training Material can be used to supplement your existing Hazard Communication written program and training program without having to re-do your entire program. It is the most efficient way to meet the training requirement that dictates that employers must train their workers on the new label elements and SDS format by December 1, 2013. Future Hazard Communication training should include and incorporate the new labeling and SDS format.

The Globally Harmonized System (GHS) Training Material Includes:

  • 24" x 18" Globally Harmonized System (GHS) Communication Poster (can be purchased separately)
  • Trainer's Guide
  • Employee Booklet
  • Valuable Training Material CD that includes:
