Hazard Communication

Hazard Communications for All Employees

OSHA now requires all employees to be trained on the new Hazardous Communication Standard (HCS) for labels and Safety Data Sheets. OSHA has adopted the United Nations' Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals and made major changes to both labels and data sheets. Since college campuses have everything from cleaning supplies to highly volatile chemicals stored in labs, any employee could come into contact with a potentially hazardous material. Making sure everyone understands the chemical labeling and knows how to keep themselves safe is essential.

40 Minutes to Compliance

Workplace Answers has developed a course to specifically cover these new requirements. Our new Hazardous Communication course covers the changes to Safety Data Sheets, labeling, and the newly adopted Globally Harmonized System (GHS). 

Course Description

This 40-minute course covers the OSHA Right-to-Know laws regarding Hazard Communications for employees in workplaces where chemicals are present. It includes an interactive tutorial on how to interpret the general concepts of toxicology, label hazard rating system details and interpreting Material Safety Data Sheets. It also provides an overview of working safely with hazardous chemicals, including containment and confinement control measures and using personal protective equipment.

 It explains what hazardous chemicals are as classified under HCS and consistent with the new Globally Harmonized System. Additionally, our course explains how to read Safety Data Sheets and describes employee rights and responsibilities connected to hazardous chemicals and workplace safety.
