Hazard Communication with (HazCom) GHS Introduction

This 45-minute module provides information needed to protect yourself from chemical hazards. This module digs deep into the definitions found on labels and Safety Data Sheets so you can better understand the health and physical hazards posed by hazardous materials.  Afterwards we will look into the actual content and formatting of a typical Material Safety Data Sheet so you know where to look when you need more information. Lastly, we will briefly provide an Introduction to the new Global Harmonization System (GHS) that will begin to affect the United States in mid to late 2011.
