Are You OSHA Compliant?
One issue you probably haven’t thought about training for in your facility is the exposure to hazardous chemicals. But in fact, according to the U.S. Secretary of Labor, Hilda Solis, it affects a multitude of workers each year.
"Exposure to hazardous chemicals is one of the most serious threats facing American workers today," said U.S. Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis. "Revising OSHA's Hazard Communication standard will improve the quality and consistency of hazard information, making it safer for workers to do their jobs and easier for employers to stay competitive."
At Barclay we take a proactive approach to safety training to ensure that your company is always OSHA compliant and maintains a safe working environment.Effective December 2013,OSHA is requiring that employees are trained on the new label elements (i.e., pictograms, hazard statements, precautionary statements, and signal words) and SDS format by December 1, 2013, while full compliance with the final rule will begin in 2015.
OSHA believes that American workplaces will soon begin to receive labels and SDSs that are consistent with the GHS, since many American and foreign chemical manufacturers have already begun to produce HazCom 2012/GHS-compliant labels and SDSs. It is important to ensure that when employees begin to see the new labels and SDSs in their workplaces, they will be familiar with them, understand how to use them, and access the information effectively.
