In recent years, OSHA has updated their stance on how Hazard Communication Standards are to be displayed and has aligned with the Global Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). These regulations, though, are not limited to workplaces that work with hazardous materials, it also extends to manufacturers and transporters of these materials. Under these new GHS regulations, SDS’ are required to contain specific sections and headings that act as a comprehensive guide to hazardous materials - these sections include: identification, hazards identification, composition/information on ingredients, fire-aid measures, fire-fighting measures, accidental release measures, handling & storage, exposure controls/PPE, physical & chemical properties, stability & reactivity, toxicological information and more information which is dependent on how you’re working with these materials.1
These micro-learning clips are designed to help the learner understand what is the purpose of material safety data sheets, how to properly identify materials and its hazards, how to recognize the related hazards of the materials, what are the precautions when working with hazardous materials and other relevant information in SDS. With the newly updated GHS regulations coming into effect, it’s a necessity for all workers working around hazardous materials to be acquainted with GHS SDS safety sheets .
