  5. 5. © 2013 360training.com© 2013 360training.com GHS Ready to Comply? HAZARDOUS COMMUNICATION STANDARD RIGHT TO KNOW 29CFR 1910.1200
  6. 6. © 2013 360training.com Some Interesting Facts about Hazard Communication Standard and Globally Harmonized System • Over 50 Million American workers are exposed to hazardous chemicals in their workplaces. • Over 5 Million Businesses will be impacted by the new GHS requirements for labeling and SDS. • HCS covers some 650,000 hazardous chemical products found in over five million establishments. • In 2012, OSHA issued 4,696 citations for Hazard Communication (29 CFR 1910.1200) violations (mainly due to lack of training, labeling fail, access to MSDSs and lacking correct MSDSs).
  7. 7. © 2013 360training.com Globally Harmonized System- What is it? • OSHA revised its Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) March 2012 • Aligns with the United Nations’ Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS)
  8. 8. © 2013 360training.com Globally Harmonized System (GHS) • Nations recognized chemical hazards must be classified and labeled under a universally understood communications system to avoid risks to human health and the environment. • Nations throughout the world agreed to harmonize chemical hazard communications under a system developed by the United Nations (UN) and the International Labor Organization (ILO). • Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS), adopted by consensus in 2003 by the United Nations Economic and Social Council.
  9. 9. © 2013 360training.com Phases of Implementation By December 1, 2013, Employees must be trained on new labeling and SDSTo help companies comply with the revised standard, OSHA is phasing in the specific requirements over several years (December 1, 2013 to June 1, 2016).
  10. 10. © 2013 360training.com Two Significant Changes Training Requirement: New labeling elements Training Requirement: Standardized format for Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) Improve worker understanding of the hazards
  11. 11. © 2013 360training.com© 2013 360training.com Label Elements Training Requirement
  12. 12. © 2013 360training.com OSHA Minimum Required Training Topics Training tip from Dr. Michaels:Label Elements 1. Product Identifier 2. Signal Word 3. Pictogram 4. Hazard Statement 5. Precautionary Statements 6. Name, address, phone of manufacturer, distributor, importer OSHA requires employers: (with all training) Present information in a manner and language that their employees can understand. If employers customarily need to communicate work instructions or other workplace information to employees in a language other than English, they will also need to provide safety and health training to employees in the same manner. Similarly, if the employee’s vocabulary is limited, the training must account for that limitation. By the same token, if employees are not literate, telling them to read training materials will not satisfy the employer’s training obligation.
  13. 13. © 2013 360training.com Required Training- Labels Label Elements 1. Product Identifier 2. Signal Word 3. Pictogram 4. Hazard Statement 5. Precautionary Statements 6. Name, address, phone of manufacturer, distributor, importer Do you recognize the six elements?
  14. 14. © 2013 360training.com Label Elements 1. Product Identifier • Chemical Name • Code number or batch number • Manufacturer, importer or distributor can decide the appropriate product identifier • Product identifier must be both on the label and in Section 1 of the SDS (Identification)
  15. 15. © 2013 360training.com Label Elements 2. Signal Word – Used to indicate the relative level of severity of hazard and alert the reader to a potential hazard on the label. – Two Words: “Danger” and “Warning.” – “Danger” is used for more severe hazards. – “Warning” is used for less severe hazards. – There will only be one signal word on the label no matter how many hazards a chemical may have. – If one of the hazards warrants a “Danger” signal word and another warrants the signal word “Warning,” then only “Danger” should appear on the label.
  16. 16. © 2013 360training.com Label Elements Examples: 3. Pictogram: (hazard pictograms) with red border *A square red frame set at a point without a hazard symbol is not a pictogram and is not permitted on the label.
  17. 17. © 2013 360training.com Pictograms
  18. 18. © 2013 360training.com Label Element: 4. Hazard Statement • Describe the nature of the hazard(s) of a chemical. For example: “Causes damage to kidneys through prolonged or repeated exposure when absorbed through the skin.” • All of the applicable hazard statements must appear on the label. • Hazard statements may be combined where appropriate to reduce redundancies and improve readability. • Hazard statements are specific to the hazard classification categories. • Chemical users should always see the same statement for the same hazards, no matter what the chemical is or who produces it.
  19. 19. © 2013 360training.com Label Elements 5. Precautionary Statement – Phrase that describes recommended measures that should be taken to minimize or prevent adverse effects resulting from exposure to a hazardous chemical or improper storage or handling. Example: Labels give workers information on correct storage of the chemical or exposure effects. Example: Information on the label might be used to quickly locate information on first aid when needed by employees or emergency personnel. 6. Name, address, phone of manufacturer, distributor, importer
  20. 20. © 2013 360training.com How the elements work together on a label • Where a chemical has multiple hazards, different pictograms are used to identify the various hazards. • Employees should expect to see the appropriate pictogram for the corresponding hazard class. • When there are similar precautionary statements, the one providing the most protective information will be included on the label.
  21. 21. © 2013 360training.com© 2013 360training.com Safety Data Sheets (SDS) Training Requirement
  22. 22. © 2013 360training.com Safety Data Sheet (SDS) • As of June 1, 2015, the HCS will require new SDSs to be in a uniform format, and include the section numbers, the headings, and associated information.
  23. 23. © 2013 360training.com SDS Training Requirements Training on the format of the SDS must include information on: 1. Standardized 16-section format, including the type of information found in the various sections Example- the employee should be instructed that with the new format, Section 8 (Exposure Controls/Personal Protection) will always contain information about exposure limits, engineering controls and ways to protect yourself, including personal protective equipment. 2. How the information on the label is related to the SDS Example- explain that the precautionary statements would be the same on the label and on the SDS.
