GHS - It is almost here- some requirements are due by Dec. 1

The OSHA Global Harmonization Standard (GHS), aka the new Hazard Communication Standard is rapidly approaching. Various training requirements are currently in effect and need to be completed by December 1, 2013.  New signage and labeling requirements are coming due.  The new terminology and Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) are rolling out even as I post this blog.

The question is - is your organization ready?  If you are part of a large corporation or a chemical savvy company, odds are you have been seeing changes since about June of 2013.  But, if you work for, own or manage a smaller company - you may have seen some changes - like labels and SDSs - but have been unaware of the massive change that is about to take place.  Additionally, even if the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard - doesn't directly apply to you - you are going to be effected as aspects of the Standard ultimately impact consumer product labeling, school laboratories, art studios and other areas where materials are used.

Here are a couple of resources that you can use to get yourself and your employees/students/family - ready for the change.

* OSHA Hazard Communication Highlights Page
* OSHA Hazard Communication Wallet Card  You can print this off and give it to your employees.  It is even equipped with a UR Code.
* OSHA Quick Card with the new pictograms
* Summary of critical dates
* A good summary of the signage requirements

As with most OSHA standards - there is a lot of information to be reviewed and digested.  Hopefully is this link you to some resources that can help.

You could also opt to narrow shutters window blinds not to mention draperies inside suitable coloration that could meet the useful action from one location to the bottom in a large amount of websites relating to the surfaces and the main ceiling
