OSHA GHS Training Deadline is December 1, 2013


Have you trained your employees on GHS?  OSHA revised its Hazard Communication Standard to align with the United Nations’ Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) in March of 2012.

Two significant changes contained in the revised standard are the new labeling requirements and the new standardized format for Safety Data sheets (SDSs), which were formerly called Material Safety Data Sheets or MSDSs.  Training on these changes is required by December 1, 2013.

Need help complying quickly?  We have prepared a PowerPoint presentation that you can use with your employees. It has all the information you need including notes where applicable to help you explain the changes.  A completion certificate and training log in MS Word is also included so you can document the training.

Need more help with GHS compliance?  An easy to understand summary of all GHS requirements can be found in our blog post and OSHA’s Fact Sheet details the training requirements that must be in place by December 1, 2013.
