New Hazard Communication and Global Harmonized System

OSHA has had a Hazard Communication regulation in place since 1986. This standard is typically among the top 5 violations cited by OSHA Inspectors when they visit a workplace. In 2012 Congress enacted sweeping changes to the Hazard Communication Standard, including incorporation of the Globally Harmonized system of Chemical classification. This new standard affects all segments of industry, whether they use, manufacture, or distribute chemicals.

This seminar will explain the requirements of the new Hazard Communication Standard and compare the old requirements with the new requirements. Examples of how the new requirements will be implemented, along with a time line for implementation will be presented. Attendees will be able to explore the requirements of the updated regulation and determine how to best apply it in their business.

OSHA Record Keeping

Whether one likes it or not, OSHA plays an important role in the day to day activities of most businesses. Employers wish to comply with OSHA to provide a safe workplace for their employees. They also want to avoid fines and the problems that come about as a result of those fines. It is not always easy to understand the intricacies of some OSHA regulations, such as the updated OSHA Injury and Illness reporting requirements.

During this seminar, we will cover the requirements of the regulation, highlight the changes and explain how to better understand the requirements of the regulation so as to avoid fines and penalties. We will also provide practical examples and hands on activities so that attendees can apply the lessons of the seminar to real life situations.
