Wednesday, November 28, 2012

Comment | More

New U.S. requirements for classifying chemicals and communicating hazardous information on container labels and material safety data sheets will be the topic of a free upcoming webinar by SSPC and JPCL.

“Complying with the Updated OSHA Hazard Communication Standard” will be presented from 11 a.m. to noon ET Dec. 5.

OSHA's Hazard Communication Standard: 1910.1200 was updated this year to align with the UN Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals.

The webinar will explain the importance of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s Hazard Communication Standard: 1910.1200, which was updated May 25 to align with the UN Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals.

The update provides a uniform global approach to classifying chemicals and communicating hazardous information on container labels and MSDS. The webinar will explain how the update differs from the past version and how to conform to the current version.

The discussion will include how the new changes improve quality and consistency of hazard information in the workplace, making it safer for workers and helping reduce trade barriers, resulting in productivity improvements for American businesses that regularly handle, store, and use hazardous chemicals.

Participants may register here free.
