OSHA REQUIRED GHS TRAINING
The Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals, also known as the GHS, was adopted into the OSHA Hazard Communication standard when it was revised in 2012. Employers are required to provide training for all workers to read and understand the new GHS compliant labels and Safety Data Sheets (SDS's) before the December 1, 2013 deadline, and provide the training for all new employees thereafter.
To assist employers with these new training requirements, OSHA Training Services has assembled several resources and made them all available on this page. This includes free tool box talks on the GHS labeling system and safety data sheet (SDS) formats (see 2013 toolbox talks), free online training tutorials on GHS labeling systems and Safety Data Sheets (SDS's), and we also offer video and DVD-based GHS training kits for do-it-yourself trainers.
