Course Description

All workers, healthcare, general industry, construction and maritime workers who are exposed to, work around or work with hazardous chemicals must receive hazard communication training. This course provides a detailed overview OSHA’s hazard communication standard and includes information on the incorporation of GHS into the standard. The GHS does not include harmonized training provisions, but recognizes that training is essential to an effective hazard communication approach. The revised Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) requires that workers be re-trained within two years of the publication of the final rule to facilitate recognition and understanding of the new labels and safety data sheets. OSHA estimates that the revised HCS will result in the prevention of 43 fatalities and 585 injuries and illnesses (318 non-lost-workday injuries and illnesses, 203 lost-workday injuries and illnesses, and 64 chronic illnesses) annually. The monetized value of this reduction in occupational risks is an estimated $250 million a year on an annualized basis. OSHA estimates that over 5 million workplaces in the United States would be affected by the revised Hazard Communication Standard (HCS).
