Globally Harmonized System (GHS) and SDS

Thanks for the collaborative spirit (mahalo nui loa!) of my colleague DRT Myles Yamamoto of Central District, we are getting the most current information on safety issues:

GHS is the system created by the United Nations to standardize chemical classification and labeling for world-wide implementation. December 2013 was the training deadline for employees “on the new label elements and SDS format.” Other implementation dates are fast approaching, and we should properly prepare our learning environments accordingly.
