It’s an instant indicator for them, but if they see the old book there and it says MSDS, the first thing they’re going to say is did you train your employees by January 1, 2013?
Wake Forest, NC (PRWEB) November 26, 2013
The holiday season is beginning and with the holidays in sight, January 1st is just over the horizon. For facility managers this date is of great importance in regards to the new Global Harmonization System regulations OSHA is rolling out. January 1st is the date that employees must be trained in the meaning and concepts of the new GHS labeling system.
One aspect of the new GHS system is the conversion of Material Safety Data Sheets to Safety Data Sheets. Although this change seems to have little to no significance, there is one important aspect of this change that could prove to be helpful or detrimental.
In a interview with a former OSHA inspector, he explained that one of the main purposes for the change of MSDS to SDS is to indicate which facilities have been trained in the new GHS system. He explains, "when they [OSHA inspectors] walk into a facility and they see SDS they’re going to say these guys have been trained on GHS." "It’s an instant indicator for them, but if they see the old book there and it says MSDS, the first thing they’re going to say is did you train your employees by January 1, 2013?"
Because of all these upcoming changes Stop-Painting.com is excited to offer an entire line of SDS materials to help facilities become up to date. This new line of products includes SDS binders in English and Spanish, wall mounted SDS binder holders, a variety of SDS signs, and SDS training stations.
