OSHA revised their Hazard Communication regulation, 29 CFR 1910.1200 to align with the United Nations Globally Harmonized System. This GHS Hazard Communication Training is designed to provide instruction and certification for employees on this updated standard, and to ensure compliance with OSHA and the Globally Harmonized System.
The Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals, or GHS, is a worldwide system from the United Nations which classifies chemicals, labels, and safety data sheets for hazardous substances. The elements in the GHS supply a mechanism to meet the basic requirements of any hazard communication system, which is to decide if the chemical product produced and/or supplied, is hazardous, and to prepare a label or safety data sheet as appropriate.
Chemicals pose a wide range of health as well as physical hazards. It is imperative that anybody exposed to chemicals in the workplace be professionally trained on how to identify chemicals, understand the threats a hazardous chemical pose, and be able to safely remediate a hazardous chemical situation. This GHS Hazard Communication Course is designed to ensure that the hazards of all chemicals produced or imported are evaluated, and that the information concerning these hazards is clearly understood by the worker.
Using the proper personal protective equipment (PPE), will help to ensure that employees remain safe when working around the many hazards a workplace can have. It is critical that workers have a working knowledge of the various types of personal protective equipment and how to use each type properly. To reduce the possibility of failure, PPE must also be maintained and stored properly.
This interactive Personal Protective Equipment Safety Course will train on all of these aspects of using PPE safely in the workplace, per OSHAs 29 CFR 1910.132 Subpart I standard.
