Globally Harmonized System Training

Learn more about OSHA’s Global Harmonization System

The Maine Community College System is pleased to partner with the Maine Department of Labor (MDOL) to provide employees and employers across the state with access to detailed information about new federal standards for working with hazardous chemicals.

All employees in Maine are required to be trained in this new Global Harmonization System. The following 23-minute video, produced by MDOL, makes it possible for employers to offer the training at no cost to employees wherever it is most convenient—at work, at home, or even the local library.

The video is not under copyright and may freely be downloaded and used.

Additional information about the Global Harmonization System—including accessible descriptions of the pictograms, a sample workplace policy, PowerPoint presentations, poster, and quiz—is available at MDOL’s SafetyWorks! website.

To learn more about the education and training opportunities available to individuals and businesses at Maine’s seven community colleges, please stay on our site after you view the video and explore what’s possible!
