Event Details

Globally Harmonized Hazard Communication

Most employers are familiar with OSHA's Chemical Hazard Communication Standard, often referred to as "right to know". One of the problems associated with the original law was container labels and warning symbols differ from country to country. This inconsistency could cause confusion and possible injuries. Another problem with the original law was it didn't require a consistent format for the content of the material safety data sheets (MSDS), the document which provides details regarding the hazards of the chemical product.


As the result of worldwide collaboration, a Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals was adopted. OSHA is incorporating these changes in a revision to the Hazard Communication Standard. This standard will be phased in over the coming years, but the most significant aspect of the revision and one that will impact nearly every employer, is the obligation to provide training to employees by December 1, 2013.


Employees must receive training on the:

  • use of new symbols
  • hazard classification system
  • standardized safety data sheet (SDS) replacing the (MSDS)


This workshop will review details of the revised standard and what employers must do before December 1st to comply. Because this revised regulation affects nearly every employer, it is  important you attend. It is expected OSHA will be inspecting employers for compliance with the new requirement and penalties for failure to comply will be many thousands of dollars.
