Kushner Electroplating School (Anaheim, California) has updated all of its English-language seminar programs, both live and online versions, with new content supporting the company's Globally Harmonized System (GHS) for labeling and safety data sheet training. The update will comply with the revised OSHA Hazard Communication Standard, which affects employee training beginning this year. OSHA revised the standard in 2013.
While importers and manufacturers of hazardous chemicals are not required to update all hazardous material labeling until June 1, 2015, every owner/operator must train employees about the label changes this year.
"Attending one of our live seminars or completing the online version of the Electroplating Know-How Basics training program will provide our clients with the information necessary to comply with the new GHS regulations," says William Sepp, Program Director at Kushner.
Kushner's Spanish-language seminars have also been updated with the GHS information and the company plans to release an online version shortly.
