HAZCOM2012: OSHA'S Safety Data Sheet, Labeling and Training Requirements
In HAZCOM2012: OSHA'S Safety Data Sheet, Labeling and Training Requirements, you'll learn ...
- What is HAZCOM2012 and who it applies to
- What are the HAZCOM 2012 compliance requirements and dates
- Required format and content of safety data sheets
HazCom2012 refers to revised Hazard Communication Standard adopted by the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) in 2012. This new regulation establishes more detailed and specific requirements for material safety data sheets (now simply called Safety Data Sheets), product labeling, and worker training. Various implementation deadlines range for December 1, 2013 to June 1, 2016. This course explains these changes and provides the salient information you can use to work more safely with hazardous materials.
This course is intended for technical professionals and managers who work with or oversee the handling of hazardous materials regulated by OSHA. This course requires no pre-requisite knowledge.
The course explains the HazCom2012 rule and could therefore serve as the introductory portion of the training requirements of HazCom2012. However, this course obviously cannot provide site-specific training about hazards in any particular workplace, which is explained herein as a required element of the training. Therefore, it cannot be used to meet all of the HazCom2012 training requirements.
