When you are working with a hazardous chemical, you need to know what it is, what it does and how to stay safe around it. Standards organizations around the world are harmonizing Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) to ensure that each sheet is consistent and thorough in explaining the necessary information to keep you safe around hazardous substances. This course explains SDSs to managers and front-line workers in industries and environments that require the use of hazardous substances.
Hazards are universal, and languages are not. To keep individuals safe in workplaces throughout the world, regulators are working to standardize symbols, called pictograms, to communicate hazards in a consistent manner from workplace to workplace and from country to country. This mini-module covers pictograms and the hazards associated with them, as encountered on labels and Safety Data Sheets (SDSs).
Labels keep us in the know all the time. Labels inform our diet decisions, ensure we take the right medicines in the right amounts, and keep us safe at heights and in tight spaces. The purpose of the GHS is to increase the quality and consistency of information provided to workers, employers and chemical users by adopting a standardized approach to hazard classification, labels and Safety Data Sheets.
