The new HazCom GHS guidelines require businesses, where hazardous chemical compounds are present, to train their employees on changes the Globally Harmonized System introduces. Some businesses may not realize that they must comply with the new HazCom GHS. To help answer some common questions, LBA University has published another in a series of information articles. “The Countdown is On for Compliance with the New OSHA GHS Standard” is available at: http://www.lbagroup.com/blog/ghs-deadline-approaches/.
“The new HazCom GHS standard requires businesses, where hazardous chemical compounds are present to train their employees on changes the Globally Harmonized System introduced and it must be completed by Dec. 1, 2013,” said LBA University course director Bryan Dixon.
Companies storing, using or handling chemicals must provide workers with OSHA compliant HazCom GHS training before Dec. 1, 2013. These chemicals can include consumer grade adhesives, paints and cleaning supplies, just to name a few. Employers must train employees on the new label elements, which include pictograms, hazard statements, precautionary statements, signal words and the new SDS format.
