The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) of the United States Department of Labor has mandated that all Material Safety Data Sheets be updated to comply under the Globally Harmonized System (GHS).  The GHS provides a unified international framework for the creation of labels and data sheets.

The new GHS sign shown on the left will replace the old Hazardous Materials poster shown on the right.

 

 

 

You will receive training on how to read and interpret all new GHS compliant labels and safety data sheets in your mandated employee training.  If you have any questions regarding this transition, please visit www.osha.gov or contact Shannon Stoddard, sstoddard@gru.edu.
