Hazard Communication, Global Harmonization and Chemical Substitution

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 08:51:18 EST

Hazard Communication (HazCom) is one of the top-three, most frequently cited OSHA standards. It was updated in 2012 to reflect the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). Manufacturers must now evaluate the hazards of the chemicals they produce (old and new), classify them, and communicate them in accordance with specific criteria set by OSHA. Employers must train employees on GHS and on any new hazards identified based on manufacturer reevaluation of existing chemicals. Half of this class covers HazCom/GHS and the other half focuses on chemical elimination/substitution. This is the first step in addressing chemical hazards. Eliminating a hazardous chemical or substituting it with something less hazardous not only reduces employee health and safety risks, but can improve your company's bottom line. Class runs from 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
