Adoption of GHS by OSHA
OSHA has officially adopted certain aspects of the international directive known as the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) into its Hazard Communication Standard (29 CFR 1900.1200). OSHA’s newly revised Hazard Communication Standard is known as HazCom 2012.
OSHA’s HazCom Standard has consistently been on its top 10 most violated standard list for several years and HazCom 2012 will likely continue to be a problematic standard to comply with. It is no longer enough to simply provide your employees with knowledge. HazCom 2012 places the burden of ensuring that employees fully understand the potential hazards of chemicals in the workplace on the employer. Safetec’s complimentary webinar will provide you with the information and tools you need to align your HazCom program with OSHA’s new mandate which focuses on a “Worker’s Right to Understand”.
