Hazard Communication (HAZCOM)

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) Hazard Communication Standard was recently updated to bring the U.S. regulation into alignment with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). The updated regulation is expected to prevent injuries and illnesses, save lives, and improve trade conditions for chemical manufacturers by standardizing the criteria for classifying and communicating physical and health hazards.

Our interactive online course, Chemical Hazard Communication was designed specifically to comply with the training requirements of HazCom 2012. It discusses the new standardized chemical container label elements, safety data sheet (SDS) format, and physical and health hazard classifications. It also reviews the most common hazard communication formats that workers may continue to see during the transition period.
