SafetySkills Has Fully Updated Their HAZCOM Training Course to Reflect GHS Standards
In March of 2012, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) adopted the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) to standardize label and safety data sheet information in line with other member states of the United Nations. OSHA is phasing in the requirements of the GHS gradually:
- December 1, 2013 - Employers must train their employees/workers on the new label elements and safety data sheet (SDS) format
- June 1, 2015 - Employers must comply with all modified provisions of the final rule
- December 1, 2015 - Distributors can still ship products labeled by manufacturers under the old OSHA system until this date
- June 1, 2016 - Employers must update alternative workplace labeling and hazard communication programs as necessary and provide additional worker training for new identified physical and health hazards
Most employees should already be aware of the changes made to the HAZCOM Standard, but the mandate for employers to comply with all modified provisions is in just a few months. SafetySkills’ HAZCOM Training reflects all of the changes to the HAZCOM Standard and all GHS training requirements. Upon completion of the course, employees will demonstrate knowledge of Hazard Communication programs. Employees will learn about the hazards of potential chemical exposure, types of hazards, Safety Data Sheets (SDSs), chemical detection methods, how chemical hazards are controlled, and how the GHS has affected the HAZCOM standard. This course is intended to assist the employer in meeting OSHA Standard 29 CFR 1910.1200.
SafetySkills also offers a full GHS course for those who need more information on the implementation of the GHS. Both the HAZCOM and GHS courses are also available in Spanish-language format.
