Description

Workers are exposed to hazardous chemicals daily in the workplace. Such conditions pose a serious health threat to the worker. OSHA requires training regarding chemical hazards in the workplace. In this course you will learn about the HazCom (Hazardous Communication) Standard and the new Globally Harmonized System (GHS), and how to use Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) and chemical labels to protect yourself from hazards or react to chemical exposures. This course gives you a basic understanding of how to identify and safely handle hazardous chemicals, OSHA's Hazardous Communications or the "Right to Know" Act, GHS, and how workers can prevent and protect themselves from chemical hazards.

MAJOR CHANGES TO THE HAZARD COMMUNICATION STANDARD
 Hazard classification: Provides specific criteria for classification of health and physical hazards, as well as classification of mixtures.
 Labels: Chemical manufacturers and importers will be required to provide a label that includes a harmonized signal word, pictogram, and hazard statement for each hazard class and category. Precautionary statements must also be provided.
 Safety Data Sheets: Will now have a specified 16-section format.
 Information and training: Employers are required to train workers by December 1, 2013 on the new labels elements and safety data sheets format to facilitate recognition and understanding.
