Product InnovationsCompanies now have an easy way to train Spanish- and Canadian French-speaking employees on critical hazard communication topics, with J. J. Keller's new online editions of its HazCom:What You Need To Know training program.

The courses, also available in English and in a variety of additional training formats, are part of J. J. Keller's Training On Demand course offerings, which provides self-paced interactive training available anytime, anywhere there is an Internet connection.

With the new HazCom courses, companies can comply with initial and refresher training requirements of the Hazard Communication Standard (29 CFR 1910.1200) that incorporates GHS components.

The courses cover GHS hazard classification and categories, along with the chemical inventory, employee training requirements, and the written program.

GHS-style labels are also covered, including the six required label elements and nine pictograms. The courses also cover Safety Data Sheets (SDS) and the new GHS-specified 16-section format, so that employees know how to handle, store and dispose of chemicals. Best practices for safely handling chemicals are also included.

“Changes to the HazCom standard are going to affect all employers,” said Robert A. Ernst, editor of workplace safety content for J. J. Keller. “OSHA’s first compliance date is December 1st of 2013. By that date you must train your affected employees on the new GHS-style label and on the 16-section Safety Data Sheet format and content. J. J. Keller’s HazCom What You Need To Know training courses cover these critical topics to help comply with the December 1st deadline.”

HazCom: What You Need To Know online training courses in Spanish or Canadian French can be purchased by calling 800-327-6868 and referencing Promo Code 104197, or by visiting jjkeller.com /104197.
