 Changes to OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) to align with the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) mean important compliance challenges for employers, manufactures and distributors in the U.S. The biggest changes include new formats in the GHS style for chemical safety data sheets and labels, new chemical classifications, and aggressive training/compliance deadlines.

Called HazCom 2012, OSHA’s revised HCS will require affected parties to adjust many of their core processes and philosophies related to chemical management. Minimizing risk and ensuring compliance throughout the transition will require careful planning and diligence.

In this 90-minute webinar, Glenn Trout of MSDSonline will provide a common sense roadmap to compliance with HazCom 2012, including strategies for meeting deadlines, managing the safety data sheet and label churn, and addressing the most frequently asked questions related to GHS adoption. This webinar is designed to:

  • Review GHS and HazCom 2012 at a high level, providing global context for the changes in the United States
  • Discuss, in depth, the major changes to the HCS (i.e. chemical classification, safety data sheets, labels, training)
  • Provide strategies for meeting HazCom 2012 deadlines while maintaining compliance and avoiding risk
  • Address the most frequently asked questions related to GHS adoption.
