Do you know what this symbol means? Every worker in the US will need to know it, as well as others that OSHA is adopting this year.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has announced that by August of this year, companies in the US must begin to adopt the globally harmonized system (GHS) for the classification and labeling of hazardous chemicals. This means that virtually every product label, material safety data sheet (soon to be called “safety data sheet”), and written hazard communication plan must be revised to meet the new standard. Worker training must be updated so that workers can recognize and understand the symbols and pictograms on the new labels as well as the new hazard statements and precautions on MSDSs.

Environmental Resource Center is offering a 1-hour webcast to help companies learn how the new rule that OSHA is adopting differs from current requirements, how to implement the changes, and when the changes must be implemented.

The $99 webcast will be conducted from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm ET on the following dates:
May 2nd
May 16th
June 2nd
June 17th

The first three webcasts held in April of this year were completely sold out. Register early to ensure your spot. Click here to register online or call 800-537-2372 to register by phone.
