OSHA Hosts a Free GHS (Globally Harmonized System) Webinar
The webinar is designed to answer many of the questions that OSHA has received during the first year of the implementation of the revised Hazard Communication standard. Be sure to register early for the free OSHA GHS HAZCOM webinar. Once you have registered, you will have the opportunity to submit questions that will be answered by OSHA representatives Jennifer H. Lawless and Kathy Landkrohn at the conclusion of the webinar.
This webinar will focus on the following updates to the HAZCOM standard:
- Safety Data Sheets
- How manufacturers, importers, distributors, and employers can meet the compliance requirements during the transition period
Under the new Hazard Communication Standard (HAZCOM), employers must conduct training for workers on the new labeling requirements and safety data sheet format by December 1, 2013. OSHA has aligned its HAZCOM standard with the United Nations’ Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals. The GHS update is intended to provide a common approach to classifying chemicals and communicating hazard information on labels and safety data sheets.
OSHA has developed several resources available to help employers during the implementation phase of the revised HAZCOM standard. OSHA’s Hazard Communication Web Page contains documents that explain the changes to the HAZCOM standard, a HAZCOM fact sheet, a review of the HAZCOM training requirements, new HAZCOM quick cards, and information on the new GHS Pictograms.
