  • What to expect from manufacturers
slide5

GHS Timeline

Training Deadline:

December 1st!

slide6

GHS Timeline

Training Deadline:

December 1st!

  • Who: Employers
  • What: Must train employees on label requirements and the new safety data sheets.
slide7

GHS Timeline

June 1st, 2015

  • Who: Chemical manufactures
  • What: Must comply with all final rules & provisions of the regulation.
slide8

GHS Timeline

  • Who: Chemical distributors
  • What: Must ship containers using GHS compliant labels.

December 1, 2015

slide9

GHS Timeline

June 1st, 2016

  • Who: Employers/distributors
  • What: Must update workplace HAZCOM program and train employees on newly identified hazards.
slide10

Training

Trainers must educate all applicable employees on the following two key items by December 1, 2013

  • The new labeling requirements under GHS
  • The new Safety Data Sheets (SDS) under GHS and how the SDS will replace the MSDS
slide11

Who must be trained??

  • All employees who work with or have the potential exposure of hazardous chemicalsin the workplace.
slide12

Who must be trained??

  • All employees who work in an area where hazardous chemicals are present.
slide13

Who must be trained??

  • Don’t forget new hires and job transfer!
slide14

So… how do you train for GHS?

  • Show the video created by MCAA
  • Ask employees to sign the sign-in sheet
  • Ask employees to take the quiz
slide17

Label Requirements

Labels on shipping containers must include:

  • Product Identifier
  • Signal Word
  • Pictogram
  • Hazard Statement
  • Precautionary Statement
  • Supplier Identification (Name, Address, Phone Number)
slide19

Signal Word

A word used to indicate the relative level of severity of hazard and alert the reader to a potential hazard on the label

  • Example: “danger” and “warning”
slide20

Hazard Statement

A statement assigned to a hazard class and category that describes the nature of the hazard(s) of a chemical, including, where appropriate, the degree of hazard

  • Example: Fatal if swallowed (Acute Oral Toxicity)
slide21

Precautionary Statement

A phrase that describes recommended measures that should be taken to minimize or prevent adverse effects resulting from exposure to a hazardous chemical, or improper storage or handling.

  • Example: Do not eat, drink, or smoke when using this product.
  • Example: Keep container tightly closed
precautionary statement
Precautionary Statement

The statements assigned to a chemical address the following four areas:

Prevention

Response

Storage

Disposal

pictogram
Pictogram

A composition that may include a symbol plus other graphic elements to convey specific information about the hazards of a chemical

  • Eight pictograms are designated under this standard for application to a hazard category.

Not all signs make sense.

Fortunately, GHS signs are pretty easy to follow.
