OSHA HAZCOM GHS Training
There are no upcoming events.
HAZCOM (Hazard Communication)
HAZCOM Standard is referred to as the Right to Know Law. 29 CFR 1910.1200
HCS focus is to ensure employees are provided with the proper knowledge about the chemicals they work with and or are exposed to within their workplace. It is the responsibility of the employer to ensure employees are properly trained prior to working with chemicals.
If you have employees working with and or around chemicals in their workplace, then HCS most likely apply to you the employer and your employees. Compliance also pertains to guests and contractors that may bring chemicals into your workplace.
What Does OSHA Require?
Hazard Communication Standard
In order to ensure chemical safety in the workplace, information about the identities and hazards of the chemicals must be available and understandable to workers. OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) requires the development and dissemination of such information:
Chemical manufacturers and importers are required to evaluate the hazards of the chemicals they produce or import, and prepare labels and safety data sheets to convey the hazard information to their downstream customers;
All employers with hazardous chemicals in their workplaces must have labels and safety data sheets for their exposed workers, and train them to handle the chemicals appropriately.
OSHA has adopted new hazardous chemical labeling requirements as a part of its recent revision of the Hazard Communication Standard, 29 CFR 1910.1200 (HCS), bringing it into alignment with the United Nations’ Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS).
GHS (Globally Harmonized System)
In 2003, the United Nations (UN) adopted the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS).
OSHA published a proposed rulemaking on September 30, 2009 to align OSHA’s Hazard Communication standard (HCS) with the GHS.
The U.S. officially adopted the Globally Harmonized System on March 26, 2012. OSHA’s adoption is actually a revision of the Hazard Communication Standard to align with the GHS. OSHA calls this revision, HazCom 2012. The GHS is not a global law or regulation– a common misconception – it is a system.
