Prepare Now for OSHA's December 1, 2013 Employer Training Deadline Required By the New Hazard Communication Standard
This webinar was originally presented in June 2013.
In 2012, OSHA enacted its Global Harmonization Standard (GHS) which included a number of significant changes to its Hazard Communication Standard (HazCom 2012). These changes affect all employers utilizing hazardous chemicals at their worksites. One of the major changes of the GHS requires employers to train their employees on the new “Safety Data Sheets” (SDS) by December 1, 2013.
Fisher & Phillips Partner and former head of OSHA, Ed Foulke, presented a free webinar that helped prepare employers to meet their obligations under GHS and HazCom 2012. This webinar provided a detailed explanation of OSHA’s changes to the Hazard Communication Standard and discussd steps that your organization can take to meet your obligations under this new standard. Although OSHA’s deadline for compliance is several months away, employers are already receiving the new SDSs and it is critical that your employees understand how to review these new SDSs.
Topics covered in this webinar include:
- The requirement of the new GHS and HazCom 2012 at a high level, with specific focus on the GHS changes and employer training obligations
- How to understand and review the new Safety Data Sheets
- OSHA’s training expectations for meeting the December 1, 2013 deadline
- Strategies for meeting all HazCom 2012 deadlines while maintaining compliance and avoiding the risk of potential OSHA citations and penalties
