Four Free GHS and SDS Management Webinars to Help Safety Pros Start 2013 on the Right Foot

Free GHS related webinars coming up in the next two months include:

1. Electronic MSDS Management: The Easy Way to Manage Chemicals and Transition to GHS -Feb 5:

On February 5, VP of Sales at MSDSonline, Chuck Haling, will deliver a Webinar on electronic management of safety data sheets. Because of OSHA’s adoption of GHS (HazCom 2012), safety data sheets are undergoing big changes, and U.S. based companies that use hazardous chemicals should expect to have their entire safety data sheet library updated in the next couple of years. Electronic management provides critical support to employers and safety professionals transitioning to the updated standard.

    3. GHS Adoption from an Authoring Perspective - Jan 30

    Chemical manufacturers and distributors should already be working on meeting their GHS related OSHA deadline, June 1, 2015 – which is the date by which they must have reclassified their chemicals and updated their safety data sheets and chemical labels using GHS criteria. For those companies with dozens, hundreds or thousands of safety data sheets to revise, or those needing to use an outside vendor, the window for completing the work on time and economically is closing.
