The Department of Energy has a GHS update program on the web.
Does anyone have a staff training program to share?

I'm a member of NFPA and vote on a few standards, but not this one. But I have NEVER liked this system for users. It is fine for hazmat workers mopping up a spill on the highway for immediate information. But users need something more sophisticated, and this GHS one is better. combined with the pictograms and proscribed warning phrases, it is more informative. So I'm teaching it. I admit our people have fewer technical issues than your lab people, but it works for me.
