In our global economy, people anywhere in the world should have access to accurate information about hazardous materials. The United Nations created a Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals. The GHS was implemented by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for use in their HazCom standard. This online safety training course teaches workers how to recognize, understand, and use the GHS labels when working with hazardous materials.
Viewers learn how OSHA uses the GHS to provide information about hazardous materials. OSHA does this through how the materials are classified, how hazards and safety precautions are described, and how the information is presented. This is accomplished by using images and text to quickly communicate information about the hazardous materials.
This course details the different GHS text elements and pictograms. The GHS text element always contains five sets of information: the name of the material; a signal word; a hazard statement; precautionary information; and the name and contact information of the supplier. The GHS also uses nine pictograms to visually convey the hazards associated with the chemicals.
This course prepares employees to stay safe on the job by understanding and using the information on GHS container labels.
