OSHA GHS HazCom: Employee video training
Employers whose employees work with or around any hazardous chemical must train their employees according to the requirements of the OSHA Hazard Communications (HazCom) Rule (29 CFR 1910.1200). In 2012 the HazCom Rule was amended to bring it into harmonization with global hazard communication practices. This is called the Global Harmonization System (GHS). The training kit (Understanding GHS HazCom) shows employees how to read and understand the new GHS container labels and the revised Safety Data Sheets, SDSs (formerly called Material Safety Data Sheets, MSDSs). For most employers, employee training requirements will change as the GHS is phased in. Therefore, the kit contains three videos: one for each stage of the GHS phase-in process as shown below.
