ghs hazard communication worker right to know signs

Online Training Certification Course 29 CFR 1910.1200

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

Recognizing healthcare hazards is one of the first steps to preventing injury. The Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) is a system of standards designed to inform workers about chemical hazards. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) complies with the GHS. Understanding these standards is essential, because healthcare professionals must properly interpret chemical labels and follow safe handling procedures. This online training course explains all of these healthcare hazard communication standards, regulations, and best practices.

What are the governing regulations?
Many US regulations governing hazard communication are found in the Hazard Communication Standard (also commonly referred to as HazCom and the "Worker's Right to Know"). Additional US hazard communication regulations are codified by OSHA in 29 CFR §1910.1200.

Who must take this training?
Doctors, nurses, dentists, medical technicians, and related professions all need safety training in healthcare GHS hazard communication standards. All of these healthcare professions, and many others, are frequently exposed to hazardous materials. Any healthcare worker who has occupational exposure should be trained in their rights and in how to recognize and manage the health risks inherent in their duties.

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.
