GHS Globally Harmonized System

Slide2

Introduction

The federal Hazard Communication Standard says that you have a “Right-To-Know” what hazards you face on the job and how to protect yourself against those hazards.

That’s your

Right-To-Know!

Slide3

Purpose

The standard was developed to make sure that everyone who works with any hazardous chemical is aware of the hazards and the necessary precautions.

Slide4

What is GHS?

The Globally Harmonized System (GHS) is an international approach to chemical labels and safety data sheets (SDS). OSHA’s Hazard Communication standard has adopted the GHS to improve safety and health of workers through more effective communications on chemical hazards.

Slide5

OSHA Compliance Dates

OSHA is requiring training on new label elements (pictograms and signal words) and safety data sheet (SDS) format by December 2013.Full compliance in the workplace with the final rule will begin in 2016.

Slide19

Safety Data Sheets (SDS)

SDS are multi-page documents that contain more detailed information about a chemical than the container label.The revised HazCom standard requires that the information on the SDS is presented using consistent headings in a specific order.

Conclusion

During the phase-in period, employees will see the old and new labels on chemical containers. All chemical containers in the workplace have to be in compliance with the new standard by June 2016.
