Hazard Communication and Chemical Safety (GS017)
This 8 hour workshop covers training requirements of OSHA's updated HazCom standard, 1910.1200. It will teach you how to read and understand the new Global Harmonized chemical warning system (except for those requirements dealing with the employer's job-specific chemical hazard information). Participants will learn to read GHS-compliant chemical labels and SDSs and to recognize chemical hazards on the job, proper PPE in hazardous conditions, and your right to know. This training replaces the MSDS system.
Members attending training must provide their own safety shoes, safety goggles, gloves, ear protection and hard hats. Failure to provide your own safety equipment may result in your being dropped from a particular training session.
Attendance at the first training session is mandatory. 100% attendance is required for all courses that issue Certificates or Qualifications and Apprentice mandatory training. Please be on time! Late arrivals (and early departures) are disruptive to instructors and participants. Poor attendance / disruptive behavior will result in your being dropped from a particular training session.
To maximize the effectiveness of our training sessions, we limit the number of attendees. If you are registered for a specific training and need to cancel, please notify us five (5) business days before the start of scheduled training. Failure to notify us of cancellation may result in your being denied registration for future training. We reserve the right to cancel any course - with five (5) business days’ notice - for which there is an insufficient number of registered attendees. Registrants may then enroll in the next available offering of the course, or cancel the registration.
