We know business owners have enough on their plate, which is why we designed this comprehensive tool that provides training to employees in one hour.

The Globally Harmonized System of Chemical Labeling and Hazard Communication (GHS) standard, which has been adopted nationally by the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), has reached full implementation today, June 1, 2015. At this time, it is mandatory that all employees be fully trained and GHS compliant.

Personnel Concepts, a nationwide provider of Labor Law Posters and Compliance products, is accommodating these regulations with a GHS Compliance Training Program. This exclusive program, compiled by certified instructional designers and professional trainers, features a visual media training presentation (in PowerPoint and PDF format, on a CD-ROM), a facilitator’s guide to prepare the training instructor, printable job aids and training activities, pre-printed quizzes, and training acknowledgment forms to document compliance.

Many businesses fall under these GHS regulations and do require training. Under OSHA’s hazard communication standard (CFR 1910.1200), businesses that use or store hazardous chemicals must train their employees on how to read new GHS chemical labels (including pictograms) and what chemical safety information is included on new chemical safety data sheets (SDS). The GHS Compliance Training Program from Personnel Concepts provides just that. Failure to comply with OSHA’s hazard communication standard, including mandatory training requirements, can result in fines up to $7,000 per violation.

“The GHS regulations have been implemented in phases over time. This is the final phase and it is important that all employees are trained and up to speed. Now that this effective date is here, companies can be audited and fined at any time,” said Robert Leland III, Personnel Concepts’ Director of Research. “We know business owners have enough on their plate, which is why we designed this comprehensive tool that provides training to employees in one hour. We know this product will easily allow businesses not only to train their employees, but to also avoid hefty fines.”
