Navigating the OSHA GHS Requirements—Safety Data Sheet, Chemical Hazards and Chemical Warning Labeling

Over the last several years, OSHA updated its Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) to conform with the United Nations’ Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). The GHS’s international approach to hazard communication provides American businesses with criteria for classification of chemical hazards and a standardized approach to label elements and safety data sheets, according to OSHA. Based on major existing systems around the world, including OSHA’s HCS and the chemical classification and labeling systems of other government agencies, the GHS was negotiated over many years by hazard communication experts from around the world. Navigating these new OSHA GHS requirements can be complex, especially when dealing with multiple chemical hazards and chemical warning labeling requirements in a plant.

In this session, expert speaker Joe Keenan, MBA, CSP will clearly spell out the new OSHA GHS Standards as they apply to your organization. He will talk about the GHS training that is required, the new warning labels with pictograms, and discuss in detail the new Safety Data Sheet (SDS) format. You will also get answers to site-specific questions and concerns relating to the new GHS Standard. After attending this session, you will take away a basic understanding of the OSHA GHS standard requirements and learn how to apply that training and knowledge to your organization.
