GHS Training - Hazardous Communications Program
Friday, October 4, 2013 from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM (PDT)
This GHS training will explain the requirements of the global harmonized standards. It will also provide you tools and tips to train employees on the updated regulation in your organization’s facilities in order to meet the December 1, 2013 deadline.
Why Should You Attend:
The Hazardous Communication Standard is one of the most cited standards that OSHA has issued and many companies have not fully complied with the new revisions to the rule’s requirements. Many do not realize that any company that has any hazardous materials or chemicals in use must comply with this standard if they have one part time employee in a calendar year. Companies that only have an office staff must also implement this program if they use hazardous chemicals. All toners used in printing from computer printers are listed as hazardous chemicals. These new rules, which came into effect on May 25, 2012, are more complicated and prescriptive than the original standard. Employers will have to train their employees on the new standard by December 1, 2013. By June 1, 2016, the new program is to be fully implemented.
This webinar will explain the requirements of the new Hazard Communication Standard and compare the old requirements with the new requirements. This webinar will focus on important part of this new standard and what is required to train our employees.
