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 the information that employees need to know about the labeling of hazardous chemicals in all parts of their product cycle.
• Identify the risks of being exposed to hazardous chemicals at the workplace

The Globally Harmonized System (GHS) is an International approach to hazard communication, providing agreed criteria for classification of chemical hazards, and a standardized approach to label elements and safety data sheets. There is a lot of information about the new Hazard Communications program that’s changing the way organizations comply with the new rules.
This program is an explanation of how to comply, without changing your entire HAZCOM program. The topics in this program include: changes to HAZCOM, hazard classifications, labels, pictograms, and the new safety data sheets (SDS).
