OSHA has some guidelines regarding chemical labeling and classification.  Click here for the full directive from OSHA.

It’s all about GHS (Globally Harmonized System). Under the new regulations, OSHA requires employers to complete training employees in the new standard designed to create a global system of chemical classification and labeling. If you have hazardous chemicals in your restaurant, you really need to be considering putting in place an effective training program that addresses the new GHS label elements and the new Safety Data Sheet (SDS) format.

Compliance with the new GHS regulations is very important. Employers can face citations of up to $7000 for each serious violation and $70,000 for a repeated or willful violation.

Meeting OSHA safety regulations can be a headache for any restaurateur. Training programs can provide a comprehensive and effective tool for meeting your obligations under OSHA. You can utilize posters to reinforce information you have imparted during a training session. GHS Wallet Cards provide a handy way for employees to reference critical information on the new GHS pictograms. Hanging a safety data sheet rack and binder allows you to comply with OSHA requirements on the accessibility of manufacturer’s safety data sheets for both employees and first responders.

Many employers want to implement a successful training program for employees but don’t know where to begin. OSHA4Less has a great solution designed to assist our members.
