GHS Hazard Communication (Worker Right To Know)

Online Training Certification Course

29 CFR 1910.1200

From the highest rated and most trusted online training company - since 2008.

This OSHA hazard communication training covers a variety of topics related to GHS chemical hazard communication. This includes, but is not limited to, ensuring proper chemical labeling, the importance of safety data sheets (SDSs), and the necessity of creating a written hazard communication program based on the GHS Hazard Communication Standard.

The OSHA "right to know" standard, also known as the Hazard Communication Standard, protects employees from hazardous chemicals used or stored in the workplace. In 2012, OSHA incorporated the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS), which makes it easier to correctly classify and communicate hazards. This new GHS HAZCOM system also updated the requirements for safety data sheets and chemical labels.

This course is for:
This GHS HAZCOM training is designed for anyone who works with or around hazardous chemicals in their workplace. This includes, but is not limited to, healthcare workers, emergency responders, automotive workers, cleaning operations personnel, pest control/lawn care workers, plumbers, HVAC technicians, and all industries where employees are exposed to hazardous chemicals. This safety training may help prevent serious injury in the workplace and save lives.

This online certification course meets the requirements set forth by OSHA for the Hazard Communication standard.

Case Study: A bathtub refinisher working in a privately owned residence was fatally overcome by chemical exposure. He had been working in a bathroom with the door closed, but when the homeowner tried to check on the progress of the work, the door could not be opened. Concerned, the homeowner called emergency services, and the crew from the fire department forced the door open. A heat lamp and sprayer were still operating, and the room smelled strongly of chemicals. Apparently overcome by the fumes, the bathtub refinisher had become unconscious and slumped against the door. He was pronounced dead by the firefighters.

Key Takeaway: Working with hazardous chemicals requires a high level of vigilance about the dangers they pose. In this case, the refinisher appears to have prioritized the containment of the smelly fumes over his own safety. Workers should always carefully consider the risks associated with any hazardous chemicals and make safety a priority.
