 GHS Training Course (GHS Essentials course)

This GHS Training 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, created by the United Nations and adopted by several countries in the world. It is essential training 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).
