GHS Training Made Easy
Posted on March 1, 2013 by Sydney Smith
The first major component in the switchover to GHS is training all employees who work with or near potentially hazardous chemicals. There are many different GHS Training Materials available that effectively train workers, as well as tools which workers can carry with them to remind them of important safety information.
GHS Training Kits
GHS training kits offer an all-in-one package that train workers on the new Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals. These training kits cover the new GHS label elements, the new GHS pictograms, as well as how to read and interpret the new GHS Safety Data Sheets (SDS) which were previously the Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS).
As you work on training your employees, place GHS Table Top Tent Cards on tables in lunch rooms, meeting rooms, and training rooms to help reinforce the information workers are learning.
GHS Training Certificates
Recognize employees who have successfully completed GHS training with GHS Training Certificates that can be displayed anywhere. You can also give workers GHS Wallet Cards that say they are “GHS Safety Trained.”
Speaking of wallet cards, GHS wallet cards are also a great resource to provide your employees with. They contain various reminders about the information learned in training, including the 9 GHS pictograms and corresponding chemical information.
GHS Safety Banners
Once training is complete, you can also proudly display a GHS safety banner that reads, “We are GHS Trained,” or “We are GHS Compliant.”
These are just a few of the numerous tools that can help you train your employees on the new GHS standards. Get started today on the path to compliance.
