Hazard Communications Awareness Training
OSHA revised its Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) to
align with the United Nations’ Globally Harmonized System of Classification and
Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) to ensure that imported chemicals will be
accompanied by consistent hazard and precautionary information to protect
workers in the U.S.
Employers that have hazardous chemicals in their
workplaces are required by OSHA’s revised HCS to implement a hazard
communication program. The program must include new labeling elements on
containers of hazardous chemicals, the use of a standardized format for Safety
Data Sheets (SDSs), formerly known as Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs) for
hazardous chemicals, and training for workers.
This downloadable module from the Initial OSHA & DOT
First 90-Day Employee Hazmat Training program provides the tools to train employees
on the Hazard Communications standards and each of its components. It includes
the text with questions and answer keys, a PowerPoint presentation to facilitate
the training and a certificate of completion.
