Web-Based Online Employee and Supervisor OSHA HAZCOM & GHS Training and Certification

Complying with OSHA’s new HAZCOM standard & aligning your company’s training and HAZCOM practices with the UN’s Global Harmonization System is now a requirement. This change affects 40 million employees at over 5 million facilities in the U.S. alone!

Our training course meets the training requirements under OSHA 29 CFR 1910.1200 (g) relating to hazard communication revised in 2012. Our GHS Course is completely compliant with OSHA and The Global Harmonization System for HAZCOM!

If you have yet to complete GHS training, including the new OSHA HAZCOM requirements, this online course is a cost-effective option for training supervisors, managers, and employees alike.

Global Harmonized System

In 1983, OSHA issued the first Hazard Communication Standard (29 CFR 1910.1200), requiring that employers train and continuously provide information on the workplace's chemical hazards. OSHA updated this standard in 1994. In March 2012, OSHA reissued the HazCom Standard (29 CFR 1910.1200) to meet the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals.

This new HazCom Standard, known by OSHA as HCS 2012, is a complete realignment of the rules regarding the employers, manufacturers, and distributors' roles in communicating hazards to workers. One of the mandates from OSHA is the training requirement that all employees have the new updated training by December 1, 2013.

Our web-based online employee and Supervisor OSHA HAZCOM & GHS Training is the most comprehensive course on the market! If you haven’t already updated your training to the new GHS System, you must do it immediately sign up today!

New changes to the Hazard Communication Standard include:

Hazard Classification:
Chemical importers and manufacturers are now required to determine the hazards of chemicals they produce or import, including new information on health & physical hazards and classifying chemical mixtures.

Labels:
New GHS labels must include a signal word, hazard statement, pictogram, and a precautionary statement for all hazard classes and categories.

Safety Data Sheets:
The old material safety data sheets (MSDS) are now just called safety data sheets (SDS) and require 16 sections.

The OSHA Hazard Communication now requires, “That the chemical manufacturer, distributor, or importer provide Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) (formerly MSDSs or Material Safety Data Sheets) for each hazardous chemical to downstream users to communicate information on these hazards.”

Who needs Globally Harmonized System (GHS) Training?

Managers, supervisors, and Employees who haven’t learned the new Globally Harmonized System will need to take this training immediately! If you need HAZMAT Transportation initial or refresher training, this course will be included for free when you sign up for either course, find the links below!
