HAZARDOUS COMMUNICATIONS STANDARD
        As of December 1, 2013, it is required that all employers must have their employees trained in the new Hazardous Communications Standard (Global Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals). Employees must be trained in the new label elements and the Safety Date Sheets (SDS) format. The training on label elements must include the following items: Product Identifier, Signal Work, Pictogram, Hazard Statement(s), and Precautionary Statement(s.). Name, address and phone number of the chemical manufacturer, distributor, or importer.
          This new Standard is a focal point for OSHA. Several of our members have been approached by OSHA and asked if they have this training. EMPLOYERS ARE BEING FINED FOR NONCOMPLIANCE OF THIS NEW STANDARD! Please contact us if you are interested in this training.
