Understand the New OSHA Regulations and the New Hazard Communication Standards For Manufacturing and Handling of Hazardous Chemicals.

OSHA a.k.a. the Occupational Safety & Health Administration has adopted hundreds of pages of regulations mandating a host of requirements, many of which relate to the safe manufacturing and handling of hazardous chemicals. In 2012, in order to align the United States with the Globally Harmonized Systems of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) recommended for international implementation, OSHA adopted changes to its Hazard Communication Standard (HCS). The new HCS places increased demands on manufacturers, distributors, importers and anyone who uses hazardous chemicals in the work place. Recognizing these increased demands and the effort it will take to implement them, the new HCS requirements call for several "phase in" periods, with the second phase taking effect June, 2015. The prior HCS gave workers the "right to know," while the new HCS gives workers the "right to understand." To facilitate worker understanding, company executives and trainers must delve deep into the new requirements, identifying the areas where the "old ways" are no longer acceptable to regulators and additional resources are required.

This program by speaker Kristi A. Davidson will help chemical manufacturers, distributors and importers as well as companies and individuals who use or are exposed to chemicals in the workplace understand the OSHA regulations, with particular emphasis on the new HCS.
