Are there hazardous chemicals at your job?

Do you need basic OSHA Hazcom training?

Do you need training in GHS requirements?

If you are an employee who works with OR around chemicals, you need OSHA Hazard Communication and GHS training.  The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Hazard Communication (Hazcom) Standard (29 CFR 1910.1200) also known as the “Right-To-Know” Rule went into effect in November 1985. Just recently, OSHA adopted the United Nations Globally Harmonized System (GHS) for labeling and classification of chemicals. The purpose of OSHA Hazcom is to communicate the hazards associated with workplace chemicals to all employees.

The purpose of the GHS is to communicate those hazards clearly, systematically and uniformly.  Employers were required to have completed training of their employees that includes these new GHS requirements by December of 2013.  The OSHA Hazard Communication standard covers manufacturing and non-manufacturing establishments and requires:

  • Employees to be provided with information concerning hazardous chemicals through labels, safety data sheets (SDS), training and education, and a list of hazardous chemicals in each work area. NOTE:  The deadline to be trained on GHS was December 1, 2013.
  • Every employer to assess the toxicity of chemicals they make, distribute, or use based on guidelines set forth in the rule.

WHO SHOULD TAKE THIS CLASS?

Employees who handle hazardous chemicals and/or materials in their workplace are required to receive OSHA Hazard Communication and GHS training. These materials can include, but are not limited to: solvents, cleaners, caustics, flammables, and toxic materials. This online program is self-paced and has interactive exercises and quizzes to meet the OSHA Hazcom training requirement with GHS under 29 CFR 1910.1200(h). However, your employer shall be required to orient you to the types of chemicals used and the location of SDSs in your workplace.

During your OSHA Hazcom training program you will receive feedback from Safety Compliance Management (SCM) talented Remote Instructors™ who are available to answer your questions and apply the material to your job, making it even more relevant.  Safety Compliance Management, Inc., have taught major corporations, governmental agencies, the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (EPA) and authored one of the most relevant textbooks on the subject of hazardous materials response.  SCM’s experience, in both working in and with a variety of industries dealing with occupational safety and other topics, makes them uniquely qualified to discuss OSHA Hazard Communication and GHS training requirements, along with California’s Proposition 65 Requirements and how they affect your business.

INDUSTRIES THAT REQUIRE THIS COURSE

There are many situations in which workers can encounter hazardous materials, whether in your facility, on the job site or in an emergency situation. Awareness of hazardous materials is required for many fields, including:

  • Manufacturing and production plants, including refineries
  • Drug and pharmaceutical manufacturers
  • Chemical manufacturers and laboratories
  • Cleaning services
  • Delivery and waste transportation
  • Emergency response agencies

WHAT REGULATIONS DOES THIS COURSE SATISFY?

Our online OSHA hazard communication and GHS training course will satisfy federally mandated training under 29 CFR 1910.1200(h). These standards express the need for employee training on hazardous chemicals and the formation of a site-specific management program where appropriate.

It’s also an employer’s responsibility to brief personnel on hazardous materials related to this training. Employers must evaluate an individual employee’s competency of hazard communication training and reassign completion if necessary — otherwise, it’s assumed knowledge transfers between prior places of work.

OSHA requires additional training provided by employers when a new health hazard is introduced to the work area. For example, if your establishment uses a group of chemicals known to be lung irritants, and a corrosive agent is introduced, workers will need additional training in corrosive agents.

TOPICS COVERED

This course on hazard communication and GHS covers the classifications and labels that apply to the hundreds of thousands of chemicals used today. You will receive detailed information on the associated risks of these materials to human health and the environment, as well as how to communicate these factors on SDSs. Employers will learn how to create an effective protective program for hazardous material storage, handling and cleanup. Together, this information creates a foundational level of awareness for employees and supervisors.
