This two part update to the Hazard Communication course covers the changes that OSHA put in place in 2012. We will review information based on the Occupational Safety and Health Administration regulations as they relate to the hazard awareness and communication, hazard classification, Safety Data Sheets and labeling requirements of hazardous materials within the workplace. The updated Hazard Communication Standard is the core of this training and can be found in 29 CFR 1910.1200. This course will review the alignment with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals, commonly referred to as the GHS, and the changes that brings to the Hazard Communication Standard.
This training course is an overview of how the system of chemical hazard information and communication works. We will review the updated Hazard Communication Standard and its alignment with the GHS. This presentation will increase your knowledge of chemical hazards, hazard classification and the basic personal protection methods to ensure safe handling and usage of chemicals. However, it is your responsibility to apply this knowledge to the chemical hazards present in your workplace. You must always take the time to properly understand the hazards and appropriate precautions when using, handling or working around the chemicals in your facility.
This training course is a continuation to Hazard Communication Part 1. This presentation will review the updated Safety Data Sheets that are required as part of the Hazard Communication Standard. Remember, it is your responsibility to apply this knowledge to the chemical hazards present in your workplace.
