Chicago (February 16, 2015) — MSDSonline, the leading cloud-based chemical management solutions provider, announced today that it is delivering a webinar on the topic of OSHA’s fast-approaching GHS deadlines for NAEM — the largest network for environmental, health and safety, and sustainability decision-makers. The hour-long webinar, GHS: 2 Deadlines Hit in 2015. Are you Ready?, covers recent changes to OSHA’s HazCom Standard, along with compliance tasks employers should take to prepare for the 2015 GHS deadlines, which go into effect on June 1 and December 1.
“We are proud to work with NAEM to share this important EHS compliance information with their membership,” said Glenn Trout, president and CEO of MSDSonline. “We have made it one of our missions to educate corporate leaders on GHS and its influence on employee safety, risk management, the chemical lifecycle, and sustainability.”
The webinar will broadcast Tuesday, February 17 from 1:00-2:00 p.m. (Eastern) and NAEM members are invited to register at no cost. Non-members are also welcome for a nominal fee. In addition to covering the most pressing issues surrounding OSHA’s GHS adoption, the webinar will include a live Q&A session to address real-life HazCom compliance scenarios. To register, visit www.NAEM.org.
GHS, also known as the Globally Harmonized System, is a model hazard communication system developed by the United Nations. It has been embraced by more than 65 countries. In the United States, OSHA’s adoption of GHS is changing the way hazardous chemicals are categorized and how the labels and safety data sheets (SDSs) that communicate chemical hazard information are formatted.
Trout said, “This webinar is relevant to anyone covered by OSHA’s HazCom Standard, including chemical manufacturers, distributors and employers. According to OSHA, that includes over 5 million companies and 43 million workers across a range of industries, such as: manufacturing, healthcare, construction, education, gas and oil, mining, utilities, and accommodation and food services.”
