GHS Compliance for Hazmat Shippers

Course Code:


Determining which set of rules apply to your shipments, and when, can be a challenge. OSHA's recent adoption of GHS standards includes changes in material classification and labeling that can be confusing for shippers. Hazmat employees must be familiar with the similarities and differences between the DOT and OSHA regulations in order to prevent rejected shipments, incidents in transit, and fines as high as $79,976 per day, per violation.

This webinar will show you how the new GHS rules will impact your U.S. DOT hazmat shipping responsibilities. Learn the critical differences between the DOT’s Hazardous Materials Regulations and OSHA’s HazCom rules, so you can successfully identify potential conflicts and ensure your packages are in full compliance with both sets of rules.
