  • This table shows the hazard classes and categories OSHA adopted in its final rule.As with health hazards, OSHA tried to maintain the scope of Haz Com 1994 for physical hazards in Haz Com 2012. Therefore, you will notice this list also includes pyrophoric gases and combustible dusts. The definition for pyrophoric gas is contained in paragraph (c) and the label elements are presented in Appendix C.For combustible dust, we are treating as we always have. The definition for this hazard is provided in the Combustible Dust NEP (Directive CPL 03-000-008). Guidance on this hazard is provided using existing documents, including those on OSHA’s webpage. In addition there are a number of voluntary consensus standards (particularly those from NFPA) that address combustible dust.Deana will now talk about the hazard communication program and labels.
  • In the final rule OSHA decided not to phase in compliance based on whether a product is a substance or a mixture. OSHA concluded that adequate information is available for classifiers to use to classify substances and mixtures.Therefore, under the revised standard, covered employers must complete all training regarding the new label elements and SDS format by December 1, 2013 since, employees will begin seeing the new style labels considerably earlier than the compliance date for labeling. All other provisions to be in effect by June 1, 2015, except: Distributors who are passing on manufacturer labels to customers shall ensure all labels are updated by December 1, 2015 ( these distributors have an extra six months) IF distributors are not passing along manufacturer labels they MUST comply with the June 1, 2015 date for labels.Employers will also be given an additional year (by June 1, 2016) to update their hazard communication programs or any other workplace signs, if applicable.You may be curious about, or get asked “Why did OSHA pick June 1, 2015 for an effective date for labels?” This is because it coincides with the EU date for classifying mixtures.

    1. 1.  Hazard Communication System ◦ OSHA estimates:  7 million workplaces  100 million employees  945,000 hazardous chemical products
    2. 2.  All employees will be trained in the safe use of all chemicals used in the workplace!  This training will be refreshed on a yearly basis or when a new  Chemical or process is introduced 9/18/2013jars inc.
    3. 3.  sds sheets will be kept in the store or on line for all chemicals used in our operation and updated on a regular basis to satisfy the employees’ right to know  Retraining will take place when a new chemical or procedure is introduced  any questions as to interpretation of sds sheets may be directed to the safety manager  An inventory shall be supplied upon request 9/18/2013jars inc.
    4. 4.  No new chemicals will be introduced into the operation without an safety data sheet and not without approval of the operator/ safety manager.  Use of consumer style products is highly discouraged and may be construed as a violation of safety standards according to usage 9/18/2013jars inc.
    5. 5.  Chemicals shall kept in their original container or properly labeled spray bottle.  Read the label before use make sure the chemical is designed for the task at hand.  Any non-routine task will require a special training session by a qualified person. 9/18/2013jars inc.
    6. 6.  Check labels for any personal protective equipment needed!  The use of unlabeled spray bottles is PROHIBITED!  labels will not be removed or defaced 9/18/2013jars inc.
    7. 7.  All chemicals shall be stored in a designated place away from food prep areas ,intense heat sources food containers or open flames.  sds sheets for fire extinguishers and compressed gases will be kept at the main office. 9/18/2013jars inc.
    10. 10.  Standards will be more pictogram based as opposed to word based
    11. 11. Information from the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) /Purple Book ONE EXAMPLE
    12. 12. Signal Words / Hazard Pictograms
    13. 13.  Signal Words ◦ The words “Danger” and “Warning” are being used as signal words to emphasize the hazard and indicate the relative level of the severity of the hazard as assigned by a GHS hazard class and category  Danger – For more “severe” hazards  Warning – For less “severe” hazards
    14. 14.  Examples of GHS Pictograms Information from the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) /Purple Book
    15. 15.  Hazard & Precautionary Statements ◦ Hazard statements have been standardized and given phrases that describe the hazard(s) as found in the hazard classification ◦ If there is more than one hazard, then the appropriate hazard statement should be included for all identified hazards
    16. 16.  Pictograms, Signal Words and Hazard Statements
    17. 17. Safety Data Sheets
    18. 18.  Safety Data Sheets ◦ Under GHS, (Material) Safety Data Sheets (SDS) will be in a common format for all materials which require a SDS ◦ The format is intended to provide an easier to read document and allow for quicker identification of hazards and dangers of a product ◦ The SDS should contain 16 headings and is derived as a combination of document formats from  ISO – International Organization of Standardization  EU – European Union  ANSI – American National Standards Institute
    19. 19.  Safety Data Sheets ◦ The minimum recommended information includes:  Section 1 – Identification of the substance or mixture and the supplier  GHS Product Identifier  Recommended uses  Supplier details (address, phone number)  Emergency phone numbers  Section 2 – Hazard identification  GHS classification of the substance/mixture  GHS label elements (precautionary statements, hazard symbols)  Other hazards not classified by GHS (ie dust explosion hazard)
    20. 20.  Safety Data Sheets ◦ The minimum recommended information includes:  Section 3 – Composition / Ingredients  Chemical Identity – common name, synonyms, CAS number, impurities/stablizers, concentrations or concentration ranges  Section 4 – First Aid  First aid measures based on the different routes of exposure, most important symptoms/effects, indication of immediate medical attention if necessary  Section 5 – Firefighting  Suitable / unsuitable extinguishing media  Special protective equipment and precautions for firefighters
    21. 21.  Safety Data Sheets ◦ The minimum recommended information includes:  Section 6 – Accidental Release  Personal precautions, environmental precautions and containment / cleanup materials and methods  Section 7 – Handling and Storage  Precautions for safe handling  Conditions for safe storage  Section 8 - Exposure controls  Control parameters, engineering controls and individual protective measures – PPE
    22. 22.  Safety Data Sheets ◦ The minimum recommended information includes:  Section 9 – Physical / Chemical Properties  Properties about the material (e.g. state, appearance, odor, pH, flash point, vapor density, etc)  Section 10 – Stability / Reactivity  Chemical stability, reaction possibilities, conditions to avoid, incompatibilities, decomposition products  Section 11 – Toxicological Information  Likely routes of exposure  Symptoms associated with physical, chemical and toxicological characteristics  Numerical measures of toxicity
    23. 23.  Safety Data Sheets ◦ The minimum recommended information includes:  Section 12 – Ecological Information  Aquatic / Soil Toxicity  Persistence and degradability  Bioaccumulation potential  Section 13 – Disposal  Recommended disposal methods  Section 14 – Transportation  UN Number, Proper Shipping Name, Hazard Class, Packing Group  Marine Pollutant (Yes/No)  Special Precautions

    25. 25.  Safety Data Sheets ◦ With uniform data fields and common terminology, information can easily be found on the sheets ◦ Worker understanding of the dangers will also be easier to define
    26. 26.  Training ◦ Under the current hazard communication system, employers are required to train employees on the hazard associated with products ◦ Right-to-Know stations must be provided ◦ GHS does not change this requirement and stresses the importance of training for employees ◦ The GHS harmonization with labels / SDS /terminology is intended to make training easier for all
