Hazard Communication GHS

SKU: C-479

Many workplaces use hazardous chemicals. But, it’s not always easy to understand the various labeling requirements for these chemicals and the information provided to employees about the hazards these chemicals present. Concern and confusion about these issues increased when OSHA updated its Hazard Communication Standard in 2012 so “HazCom” would more closely align with the Globally Harmonized System (GHS). This course provides an overview of the key issues covered in the Hazard Communication Standard, including the 2012 revision to align with GHS, and provides information that employees need to know about the labeling of hazardous chemicals in all parts of their product cycle.

Topics Covered:

  • Hazard Communication 2012 and the GHS alignment
  • Labeling requirements
  • GHS-compliant label elements
  • The use of DOT pictograms for transport
  • Safety data sheets (SDS)
  • Pyrophoric gases, simple asphyxiants, and combustible dusts
  • Hazards not otherwise classified (HNOC)
  • Employer requirements
  • Alternate workplace labels (HMIS and NFPA)
  • Employee training
