About This Course s-mod-info

OSHA has estimated that more than 32 million workers are exposed to 650,000 hazardous chemical products in more than 3 million American workplaces. OSHA's Chemical Hazard Communication Standard is based on a simple concept that employees have both a need and a right to know the hazards and identities of the chemicals they are exposed to while working. As such, the Hazcom Standard has been known as OSHA's Worker Right to Know Standard and is designed to provide employees with the information they need to work safely. This GHS Hazard Communication training covers basic OSHA requirements for proper communication methods about hazardous chemicals in any workplace, including the modification of OSHA's Hazard Communication Standard to conform with the United Nations' (UN) Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) requirements. Topics include the OSHA Hazard Communication and Globally Harmonized System (GHS) standard, and requirements of an effective GHS Hazcom program. Also covered are the types of potential hazardous chemicals and the Hazardous Chemical Inventory, the purpose and information required by GHS of Safety Data Sheets (SDS), the required information for proper labels, including GHS pictograms, and Hazcom information and training requirements.


This course is intended for all employees who work near or with hazardous chemicals.
