Hazard Communication Standard with GHS Additions - Employer/Supervisor Training
To protect workers exposed to hazardous chemicals in all industrial sectors, the Federal Government established the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard (HazCom) 1910.1200, also known as the "right to know" law. This standard was based on a simple concept: employees have both a need and a right to know the hazards and the identities of the chemicals they are exposed to when working. In 2012 OSHA revised this standard to align it with the United Nations’ Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) such that it not only gave workers the right to know, but now it gives them the right to understand.
This course is designed to provide guidelines for the employer (and/or supervisor) in developing their own company’s Hazard Communication Program, while at the same time providing an in-depth review of what HazCom is all about, especially in light of the latest changes which were published in the Federal Register in March 2012 (77 FR 17574).

Employers shall provide employees with effective information and training on hazardous chemicals in their work area at the time of their initial assignment, and whenever a new chemical hazard the employees have not previously been trained about is introduced into their work area. Information and training may be designed to cover categories of hazards (e.g., flammability, carcinogenicity) or specific chemicals. Chemical-specific information must always be available through labels and safety data sheets.
