Hazard Communication Standard Training Course including GHS (4 hr.)
OSHA 29 CFR 1910.1200 — Hazard Communication & 2012 Revised Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) Training Certiﬁcation.
This global harmonized system training course describes the standard, chemical and physical hazards, along with hazard controls that can be used to protect the health and safety of workers. This course also helps employers in general industry settings understand their responsibility for informing employees of the hazards and identities of workplace chemicals to which they are exposed.
OSHA states that employer’s must train all affected employees on the new label elements (i.e., pictograms, hazard statements, precautionary statements, and signal words) and safety data sheets format to facilitate recognition and understanding. It is important to ensure that when employees begin to see the new labels and SDS’s in their workplaces, they will be familiar with them, understand how to use them, and access the information effectively. The changes focus on: Hazard Classification, Labeling and Marking, Safety Data Sheets (SDS) and Information Distribution and Training. This course is designed to assist employees in learning about work hazards, how to protect themselves, and include the revisions that align with the United Nations’ Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). Who Should Take This Course: All workers exposed to hazardous chemicals in all industrial sectors, all employers who subject their employees to hazardous chemicals and all employers who have employees that are exposed to hazardous chemicals.
OSHA 29 CFR 1910.1200 (C) states: Each employee who may be "exposed" to hazardous chemicals when working must be provided information and trained prior to initial assignment to work with a hazardous chemical, and whenever the hazard changes. "Exposure" or "exposed" under the rule means that "an employee is subjected to a hazardous chemical in the course of employment through any route of entry (inhalation, ingestion, skin contact or absorption, etc.) and includes potential (e.g., accidental or possible) exposure."
This course satisfies employee Hazcom training a.k.a. Worker Right To Know training requirements of OSHA 29 CFR § 1910.1200 Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals and Hazard Communication Standard.
