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.
It’s never too late to get started on proper safety training and that is why now through the end of the year we want to encourage you to sign up for one of our comprehensive courses.
A big thank you goes out to all of our employee veterans for their years of commitment in the service and on our Barclay team. We are proud to have such dedicated members! Below are just a few:
