Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) – The New Hazard Communication Standard”




The OSHA Hazard Communication Standard was recently revised to align with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). The GHS system provides a globally consistent manner of chemical hazard classification, labeling and communicating the hazards of chemicals via Safety Data Sheets (SDS).








December 1, 2013:


  • Employees must be trained on the changes to the OSHA Hazard Communication standard, the new GHS labeling system and the new GHS safety data sheets (SDS).
  • Employees must be aware of the changes so they can correctly interpret the hazards of the chemicals they work with based on the new labels and safety data sheets they may encounter.

June 1, 2015:

  • Must convert to the new GHS labeling and SDS systems, the GHS system is being implemented worldwide.




Course Objectives:




·         Outline Changes to the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard


·         Review Key Changes to Labeling System


·         Discuss the New Safety Data Sheet (SDS) Format


·         Summarize what to expect going forward


·         Provide Resources Necessary for Training Employees








The purpose of the “Train-the-Trainer” Sessions will be to inform RCUH Supervisors specifics about the upcoming training requirements and deadlines regarding the changes to the Hazard Communication Standard.  Upon conclusion of the training; resources will be provided to assist supervisors with training project employees in order to be in compliance with these OSHA Requirements and Training Deadlines.
