ARE YOU READY FOR GHS? (GLOBALLY HARMONIZED SYSTEM OF CLASSIFICATION AND LABELING OF CHEMICALS)
OSHA has recently adopted new hazardous chemical labeling requirements. According to the OSHA Brief; Hazard Communication Standard: Labels and Pictograms, “the revised standard requires that information about chemical hazards be conveyed on labels using quick visual notations to alert the user, providing immediate recognition of the hazards.” The students will analyze the labeling elements which have been (or will soon be) revised to reflect: the chemical manufacturer, product identifiers, signal words, hazard statements, precautionary statements, and supplementary information. The Globally Harmonized System of the Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) contains the following major changes: 1) hazard classification, 2) labels, 3) Safety Data Sheets, and 4) information and training. A major component of the class will be student examination of sample Safety Data Sheets, with a special emphasis on Pictograms. Employer responsibilities will also be addressed.
