Get the Training to Meet the GHS December 1, 2015 Deadline for Implementation!

Globally Harmonized System (GHS), also called the UN Globally Harmonized system of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals, is an international system created by the UN that addresses chemical classification based on the hazard types and harmonizes elements of hazard communication - such as safety data sheets and labels. The GHS aims to provide a harmonization basis of rules and regulations on chemicals at regional, national and worldwide level and is an important factor to consider in trade facilitation.

Trade would become much easier under a harmonized system, as companies shall no longer have to develop multiple labels or safety data sheets (SDS) for each country to which these chemicals might be sent in the course of trade. By providing a proposed universal set of classification and labelling criteria, clarity will exist as to what chemicals are hazardous and how they are to be treated; and also, it will be clear as to what norms shall apply for their labeling. This is thus the best time for companies in chemical manufacturing to ensure that they and their staff are fully apprised with these rules, such that they may be able to comply with these regulations with minimum hassle. Since the deadline for companies to stop shipping with the old labels is December 1, 2015, this is the perfect time to begin compliance training for the new harmonized regulatory regime. Chemical distributors can no longer send out hazardous chemicals labeled under the old (pre-GHS) HazCom Standard post Dec 1, 2015.

In this live webinar, expert speaker Mark Kozak will discuss the changes to labels and material SDS that have been mandated by US OSHA and other international partners. You will learn about the several important updates since the original June 1, 2015 deadline and how you can start compliance training to meet the next December 1, 2015 deadline for implementation. This session will also explain regulatory issues with examples from OSHA labels and also show you the format which you should essentially follow on safety data sheets. Plus, get a detailed PPT for further information on the topic.
