The Globally Harmonized System (GHS) Communication Poster was developed to assist employers/safety compliance officer to comply with OSHA's requirement to train employees on the new label elements and SDS format by December 1, 2013.
The Globally Harmonized System Communication Poster can be used as a guide for managers and trainers. Additionally, GHS Training Material can be used as well. The poster may be used as a visual aid for employees to help them understand the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS), while reinforcing key elements.
Communicating the three critical elements of the GHS system, this poster assists employers in meeting the OSHA's requirement to train employees on the system.
New changes to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA) Hazard Communication Standard are bringing the United States into alignment with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS), further improving safety and health protections for America's workers.
The new Hazard Communication standard still requires chemical manufacturers and importers to evaluate the chemicals they produce or import and provide hazard information to employers and workers by putting labels on containers and preparing Safety Data Sheets. The modified standard provides a single set of harmonized criteria for classifying chemicals according to their health and physical hazards and specifies hazard communication elements for labeling and Safety Data Sheets.
