Train staff on revised HazComm standard with new DVD

OSHA’s revised Hazard Communication standard requires hospitals and other healthcare facilities to have trained staff on the new Globally Harmonized System (GHS) by December 2013. The intent is to make the identification of hazardous chemicals much quicker and easier, and to make it faster to find recommended first aid procedures in the event of worker exposure.

HCPro will offer several staff training solutions to help facilities, including Hazard Communication Training: Implementing the GHS, a new DVD that will be available in December. This video will help you:

  • Meet OSHA requirements for training employees on the Hazard Communication standard
  • Train staff to understand the revised Hazard Communication standard
  • Improve hazardous chemical safety in your facility
  • Learn the new pictograms issued by OSHA

Chemical manufacturers aren’t required to comply with the new regulations until June 1, 2015. That means there will be close to a two-year gap during which employees will need to understand the traditional material safety data sheets (MSDS) as well as the new safety data sheets (SDS).

Visit the HCPro Marketplace for more information and to order.
