As the summer months wind down, an important deadline for employee training completion is fast approaching and it affects a multitude of industries. This deadline is for the new Global Harmonization System (GHS) for chemical labeling and handling. In order to have employees trained on this new system of labeling elements and the new organization of safety data sheets (SDS), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has issued a deadline for completion of training for December 1, 2013.
Luckily, we released three more course titles compatible for our mobile-friendly Video On Demand (VOD) format, that can act as key components for GHS training for many organizations.
Most recently released pertaining to GHS are three course titles:
- Understand GHS HazCom (Version 1A)
Provides supplemental training for those who have had HazCom training but need to learn GHS
- Understanding GHS HazCom (Version 1B)
Provides training on both old and new portions of Hazard Communication Standard
- Understanding GHS HazCom (Version 2)
Presents HazCom information as the new standard, including GHS, but does not provide training as old labels and rules
Industries such as manufacturing, transportation, processing, and some government operations use this wide range of chemicals, some of which can be hazardous to workers who are not prepared to protect themselves. Ensure employees are properly trained by using Mastery’s wide-ranging library of GHS courses.
