A major part of the Globally Harmonized System is the use of the GHS "Safety Data Sheet." It gives chemical manufacturers a standard format and specific, understandable language to use to describe a chemical's hazards. Employees need to know what the differences are between MSDS and SDS, and what type of information they will find in an SDS.
To help employees be prepared to read and understand GHS Safety Data Sheets, this education and training program is designed to present basic information in the following areas: what the "Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals" is and why OSHA has adopted it; how the GHS Safety Data Sheet organizes information; the 16 sections in the SDS and what each one addresses; and, what the differences are between MSDS and SDS and the way they present information.
