GHS Update

New for 2013 - Global Harmonization System (GHS) Training

In 2012, OSHA revised its Hazard Communication (HazCom) Standard to align with the United Nations Global Harmonization System (GHS) for Chemical Classification and Labeling. We in EHSO have developed updated training which covers important GHS topics, including new chemical label requirements and the standardized format for Safety Data Sheets (formerly MSDS). All affected University employees must receive updated training by December 2013.
