Course Summary

U.S. Hazard Communication Essentials training begins with a discussion of the United States regulatory requirements that apply to SDS authoring under the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA’s) Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) 29 CFR 1910.1200.

This standard, as updated in 2012 (and thus termed HCS 2012), is the US’s implementation of the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling (GHS).

Benefits Of Attending

This course describes and demonstrates the hazard classification, including the evaluation of data and application of professional judgment. You will learn how to accurately classify products using the OSHA implementation of GHS.

These principles are followed by a detailed discussion of the 16 sections of the SDS, section by section, where you will have the opportunity to complete a practice SDS.

The course then concludes with an interactive and practical workshop where you and the other attendees will evaluate and critique the SDSs that you have authored, which has proven to be a popular and effective way of reinforcing the concepts covered.
