Training Requirement by December 1st, 2013 for Revised Hazard Communication Standard

Training Requirement by December 1st, 2013 for Revised Hazard Communication Standard

The OSHA Hazard Communication Standard has recently been revised to include new requirements which will be phased in over the next two and half years. Facilities and operations with any hazardous chemicals or materials must complete employee training by December 1, 2013.

This rule applies to all companies even if they only have one "Hazardous Chemical" on site such as:
        battery powered fork lift trucks battery acid
        Propane powered industrial units
        Food facilities who use chemicals for cleaning

The OSHA updates to the Hazard Communication Standard includes all operations and facilities which have at least one hazardous chemical on site.

The revisions are the result of OSHA’s alignment of the Hazard Communication Standard with the United Nations’ Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals. The training, to be provided by December 1, 2013, must include information on the Standard’s new labeling and safety data sheet (SDS) format requirements.

The Standard requires certain topics to be covered in training on the new label elements.

OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard is an important rule for employers and employees.  It impacts the vast majority of worksites around the country and employers should take appropriate action to ensure compliance.

On November 19th, Barclay is hosting a 4-hour seminar addressing these changes.  Howard Schwenzer, an Authorized OSHA Outreach Trainer will be conducting the seminar.
