GHS for Hazard Communication

Newly revised to incorporate the GHS standard this course is a must for any organization with hazardous materials on premises.

OSHA’s recently released Hazard Communication Standard updates the 25-year-old regulation by incorporating the United Nations’ Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals, a system many stakeholders suggest will make it easier to classify and communicate hazards.
