Brady launches GHS and Hazard Communication training programs
DVD-based training programs include comprehensive tools to educate employees
Brady has released DVD –based training programs for the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) and OSHA’s Hazard Communication regulations that train and inform employees on the updated regulations and standards. The new training programs include videos and literature that will help employees understand the changes to OSHA’s Hazard Communication regulation and its updates to align with GHS.
Two Hazard Communication training programs available
The GHS Hazard Communication training program primarily focuses on the new GHS elements and assists in fulfilling an initial training requirement. This program offers videos about GHS labeling, safety data sheets, hazard pictograms and other elements.
The Hazard Communication comprehensive training program is intended to provide a complete overview that can be used to fulfill a typical annual review requirement. This training program is designed to ensure employees understand and know how to handle hazardous materials, in addition to learning how to read and understand safety data sheets.
Both programs include an instructor’s guide, employee quizzes, five employee handbooks and accompanying PowerPoints.
Change in regulations results in new training requirements
OSHA updated its Hazard Communication regulation (29 CFR 1910.1200) in May 2012 to align its regulations with GHS. OSHA is mandating that all employees covered under the 29 CFR 1910.1200 regulation be trained on the changes by December 1, 2013.
“Since the current regulation has been in place for nearly 30 years, a change of this magnitude requires a significant amount of time and detail to planning on training,” says Danielle Gallo, Brady product specialist for safety and facility identification products. “Expanding our training options ensures that companies complete the training requirements and get their employees educated on the changes.”
