Two years into the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) transition, there’s still confusion among employers about the new chemical labeling and safety data sheets (SDS) requirements. With one GHS alignment deadline under our belt and the next one less than a year away, it’s important for employers to understand the new landscape of labels and SDSs in order to ensure compliance with the modified rule.

Join us as we walk through what’s changed, review the most common compliance issues affecting environment, health and safety professionals today, and explain how you can use technology to create a compliant SDS and label strategy for your workplace in advance of the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration next set of deadlines. We also will look at steps chemical manufacturers should be taking to ensure compliance with the June 1, 2015 deadline for chemical reclassification.

Educational Objectives:
•Establish a baseline understanding of the changes to HazCom as a result of OSHA’s adoption of GHS
•Explain the current state of the Hazcom Standard, including the upcoming 2015 deadline for chemical classification
•Discuss EHS professionals’ most frequently asked HazCom compliance questions and review recent OSHA Letters of Interpretation
•Explore ways employers are using technology and safety data sheets to meet OSHA HazCom and the EPA SARA compliance
•Provide best practices and actionable steps employers can use to ensure compliance with the modified HazCom standard and prevent chemical-related injuries and illnesses from occurring in their workplace
