GHS Hazcom for Employees

To protect workers exposed to hazardous chemicals in all industrial sectors, the Federal Government established the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard (HazCom) 1910.1200, also known as the "right to know" law. This standard was based on a simple concept: employees have both a need and a right to know the hazards and the identities of the chemicals they are exposed to when working. OSHA has since revised this standard such that it not only gives workers the right to know, but also gives them the right to understand.

This course is designed to assist employees in learning about work hazards, how to protect themselves, and include the revisions that align with the United Nations’ Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS), published in the Federal Register in March 2012 (77 FR 17574).
