This course is meant for frontline workers and operators who are involved in handling, storage or processing of chemicals. The UN Globally Harmonized System for the Classification and Labelling of Chemicals is an international chemical classification and labeling system, adopted by several countries in the world. It is essential for workers and operators to know about this system in order to correctly identify & understand the system. This means they should be able to understand not only labels on chemicals including GHS Symbols, but also understand Safety Data Sheets (SDS).

This course covers the need for the GHS, its main features and helps in understanding the symbols, labels and format of SDS.

This GHS Essentials course can be taken by frontline workers and operators who directly handle and process chemicals.
