"Webinar: Global Harmonization Spec - What You Need to Know about Chemical Safety Labeling"

Despite OSHA’s final GHS deadline, many facilities are still not in compliance.

Also determining which standard applies to certain customers like laboratories (Hazcom vs Lab standard) adds to the confusion. 

This brief webinar will identify current GHS opportunities and bring clarity to ensure you and your employees are utilizing the right solutions for your facilities.
