An important part of any lab worker’s job is to read and understand Safety Data Sheets (SDS). This training video will teach lab workers about the new GHS, or Globally Harmonized System, for classifying and labeling chemicals. This GHS training video for lab employees will place special emphasis on working safely with chemicals they may encounter which could include flammables, corrosives, irritants, sensitizers, toxins or even carcinogens.
Replacing the old Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS), the GHS system uses Safety Data Sheets or SDS for short. Viewers of this training will learn how to answer 4 basic questions about whatever chemical or substance they are working with: 1) “What is the material and what are it’s hazards?”, 2) What should I do if a problem occurs when I’m working with this material?”, 3) “What precautions should I take to prevent problems when I work with this material?”, and 4) Is there anything else I should know about this material?” The training video goes into great detail about each of the sections of a Safety Data Sheet.
This training will help your lab employees understand the chemicals they are working with, where to find information about those chemicals or substances, and what to do in case of an accident, spill, or emergency involving a substance that they are working with. This training is available on a DVD, USB Stick, or you can also purchase the training via our online safety training program.
