Cal/OSHA Hazard Communication Training
This online course provides an overview of the California Occupational Safety and Health Administration Hazard Communication Standard (Title 8 California Code of Regulations Section 5194) and how it aligns with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). This course includes; how chemical products are classified by the manufacturer, the container labeling requirements, and the important information found in Safety Data Sheets (SDSs). Students will also learn about their employer’s requirement to have a written Hazard Communication program, chemical inventory, and chemical/hazard-specific training.
In 2003, the United Nations (UN) adopted the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). The GHS includes criteria for the classification of health, physical and environmental hazards, as well as specifying what information should be included on labels of hazardous chemicals as well as safety data sheets. The United States was an active participant in the development of the GHS, and is a member of the UN bodies established to maintain and coordinate implementation of the system.
Audience: Class is valuable for those responsible for developing and/or implementing a Hazard Communication Program and for employees to understand the Hazard Communication requirements.
