GHS for Hazard communication - ON-SITE TRAINING


 The Iowa-Illinois Safety Council's trainers can customize the training to your company and your specific needs.  On-site training is great for when you need to train several employees with little disruption to their normal schedule.

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.
