Hazardous chemicals can be found throughout most facilities; inside process laboratories, maintenance shops, out on the production floor, and in storage areas. Most offices contain hazardous chemicals in the form of common cleaning supplies.
OSHA compliance requires worker right to know training (also referred to as Hazcom training) be provided all employees who may be exposed to hazardous chemicals.
OSHA's Hazard Communication final rule requires employers to train employees on the new label elements and safety data sheet format by December 1, 2013. This online course satisfies employee Hazcom training a.k.a. Worker Right To Know training requirements of OSHA 29 CFR § 1910.1200 revised in 2012, Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals and Hazard Communication Standard.
Who must take this course?
OSHA 29 CFR 1910.1200 (C) states:
Each employee who may be "exposed" to hazardous chemicals when working must be provided information and trained prior to initial assignment to work with a hazardous chemical, and whenever the hazard changes. "Exposure" or "exposed" under the rule means that "an employee is subjected to a hazardous chemical in the course of employment through any route of entry (inhalation, ingestion, skin contact or absorption, etc.) and includes potential (e.g., accidental or possible) exposure."
