OSHA Pictograms Identify Danger in New GHS Format

OSHA's new Globally Harmonized System is an effort to make more uniform warning labels and safety sheets throughout the world. With economies everywhere intricately linked, shipments of chemicals need to be labeled in ways that protect the health of workers everywhere.

Pictograms are an important part of that warning system. Janitorial, custodial and facility maintenance departments, as well as anyone handling shipments of chemistry, need to be trained in the revised system by December 1st, 2013. To facilitate that, PUR-O-ZONE and Pro-Link have created a set of training materials you can use, including a detailed PowerPoint presentation complete with speaker talking points.
