The transition also includes new symbols regarding a chemical’s handling, stability vs. volatility, and danger level. You will learn: The elements of the 16 section safety data sheet, the different GHS pictograms and what they mean, the elements of a GHS compliant label. Instructor is Jeff Johnson from Environmental Safety &Risk Management Office.
