Hazard Communication: Globally Harmonized System

Preparing for GHS: What employers need to know


Oregon OSHA’s hazard communication (“hazcom”) standard is getting a bit of a face-lift. Oregon OSHA is incorporating portions of the United Nations’ guidance document on the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals. By doing so, they are requiring employers to create a culture change from “right-to-know” to “right-to-understand” when it comes to the physical and health hazards of chemicals in the workplace. By December 1, 2013, employers are required to have their employees trained on the new GHS process. Our goal with this training is to provide you with the tools and information needed to assure compliance with the GHS employee training requirements. We also will be explaining exactly what GHS is and the additional timeframes for compliance.
