Introduction to the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals GHS Training Module 1 Disclaimer: This program provides guidance and useful information for qualified personnel conducting employee training. It is up to

the user of this information to determine the suitability of these training materials for their specific operations. This program is not designed to be self directed. It should always be led by someone that has demonstrated knowledge in GHS and the associated requirements mandated by OSHA. Multi-Clean does not make any claims express or implied

that this training alone is suitable for training of employees or meets all training requirements. It is up to the user of these training materials to make this determination. GHS Training Program Module 1: Overview of the Globally Harmonized System of Classification of Chemicals. Specific and detailed information

that is mandated in OSHA are found in Module 2 and Module 3. Module 2: Understanding Safety Data Sheets Module 3: Understanding GHS label elements. What is GHS? GHS is a worldwide effort to standardize hazardous information in

order to enhance the protection of human health. GHS takes a harmonized approach to: Defining health, physical, and environmental hazards of chemicals Creating classification processes for each hazard Communicating hazard information and protective measures on labels and safety data sheets

Effective Dates December 1, 2013 - Train employees on new GHS label elements and Safety Data Sheets. June 1, 2015 all manufacturers and distributers comply

with labeling and SDS. June 1, 2016 fully implemented GHS system and updated Employee Right to Know programs. How does GHS affect you? New standardized format for safety data sheets and product labels

What type of Products are Affected? Acid products i.e. Bowl Cleaners, Lime Scale Removers Strong Alkaline products i.e. some Degreasers Floor Strippers Disinfectants and Sanitizers

IMPORTANT: Many products used on a daily basis are classified as non-hazardous and therefore will NOT have a Pictogram or Signal Word associated with it. These products will however use the GHS compliant Safety Data Sheet Format. Safety Data Sheets

Safety Data Sheets Safety Data Sheets 16 category format: Summary of each category 1. Identification of the substance or mixture and of the supplier 2. Hazards identification 3. Composition/information on ingredients 4. First aid measures

5. Firefighting measures 6. Accidental release measures 7. Handling and storage Safety Data Sheets 8. 9.

10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16.

Exposure controls/personal protection Physical and chemical properties Stability and reactivity Toxicological information Ecological information Disposal considerations

Transport information Regulatory information Other information including info on preparation and revision of the SDS Labels

Labels Requirements of every label: Product identifier Supplier identification Hazard statement(s) Precautionary statements Signal word (if required)

Hazard pictogram (if required) Example Multi-Clean Label Pictogram A symbol that is intended to relay specific hazard information

in a quick and easy manner Pictograms appear on both a products label and SDS Health Hazard This pictogram communicates hazards to human health, including

acute toxicity, specific target organ toxicity, and reproductive toxicity. Corrosion This pictogram indicates whether a product is corrosive

to skin, eyes, and/or metal. Exclamation Mark This pictogram communicates a less serious hazard, such as skin sensitization or skin/eye irritation.

Flame This pictogram will appear on products that are classified as flammable or combustible. For SDS information on all Multi-Clean

products, please visit This completes Module 1, go to Module 2. Understanding GHS Safety Data Sheets.
