To make all workers aware of the chemical hazards they work with, regardless of any language barrier, the United Nations developed the Globally Harmonized System for the Labeling and Classification of Chemicals (GHS), which has been adopted into OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard. This course provides an overview of the Hazard Communication Standard, the GHS, and how employees should use the communication elements of the GHS to understand the chemical hazards they face at work.

This video training explains the type of information found on container labels. It includes the chemical’s physical, health and environmental hazards. The training discusses hazard statements and precautionary statements regarding safe use, handling and storage of the chemical. It depicts and describes the images, or pictograms, used on by the GHS to indicate the physical, health and environmental hazards of the chemical. Finally, the training demonstrates how safety data sheets should be used, and their role in a facility’s overall hazard communication plan.

This training program is appropriate for anyone who works with chemicals. The concise program, available in both English and Spanish, concludes with a brief quiz to test the viewer’s learning. Use this course to review the Hazard Communication Standard and the GHS with any employee working with or around hazardous chemicals.
