OSHA Proposed Timeline


Parts of the MAXCOM GHS System


Hazard Classification

OSHA adopted all of the physical and health hazard classes in the GHS.


Safe Use Guides: Exclusive to MAXCOM|GHS, the Safe Use Guides provide comprehensive safety information.
Safe Use Guide

MAXCOM/GHS utilizes the specific criteria established by the GHS to classify workplace chemicals. The system also incorporates Safe-Use-Guides for each class of chemical an employee may be exposed to that include formatted information simplified to meet the needs of all levels of employees!


OSHA also believes that standardized presentation of information...and the use of standardized pictograms would compliment and reinforce the information provided through signal words and hazard statements. Pictograms are also anticipated to improve communication for those who are not functionally literate, or who are not literate in the language used.

MAXCOM/GHS is available in over 50 languages and it is fully compliant with all components of GHS !



Labels

In addition to the pictograms, signal word and hazard statements, GHS labels must include precautionary statements. OSHA is proposing to require the text in the precautionary statements in the GHS to be on HCS labels.


Parts of the MAXCOM GHS System

MAXCOM/GHS secondary container labels include all core components of GHS proposed by the OSHA rule change including:

  • Signal Word
  • GHS Hazard Class
  • Hazard Statements
  • Precautionary Statements
  • Pictograms

In addition MAXCOM/GHS labels can be customized to include additional hazards, target organ effects, routes of exposure, PPE, NFPA 704 diamond, etc.!


Employee Information and Training

Each employee who may be "exposed" to hazardous chemicals when working must be provided information and trained prior to initial assignment to work with a hazardous chemical, and whenever the hazard changes.

Where there are large numbers of chemicals, or the chemicals change frequently, you will probably want to train generally based on the hazard categories (e.g., flammable liquids, corrosive materials, carcinogens).


In accordance with the training requirements established by OSHA, MAXCOM/GHS offers training modules for each category [of chemical] that an employee may be exposed to in their immediate work area.

Interactive and web-enabled MAXCOM/GHS training modules provide employees with valuable information about the potential hazards, safety precautions and the emergency responses for fires, spills and first aid for the chemicals specific to their job responsibility or work area**.

**Additional MAXCOM/GHS training modules provide valuable information about how to read and interpret SDS, and how to understand GHS pictograms, warning statements, precautionary statements and hazard statements. Test results are tracked and recorded online or with company specific Learning Management Systems, (LMS).


Chemical Compatibility Storage Tool

MAXCOM/GHS provides an immediate identification of what chemicals can and cannot be safely stored together in a specific work area or cabinet.
