11/14/13 2:00 pm to 11/14/14 2:00 pm EDT


In 2012, OSHA enacted its Global Harmonization Standard (GHS) which included a number of significant changes to its Hazard Communication Standard (HazCom 2012). These changes affect all employers utilizing hazardous chemicals at their worksites.  One of the major changes of the GHS requires employers to train their employees on the new “Safety Data Sheets” (SDS) by December 1, 2013.  

Fisher & Phillips Partner and former head of OSHA, Edwin G. Foulke, Jr., presents a webinar that help prepare employers to meet their obligations under GHS and HazCom 2012. This webinar provides a detailed explanation of OSHA’s changes to the Hazard Communication Standard and discuss steps that your organization can take to meet your obligations under this new standard.  Employers are already receiving the new SDSs and it is critical that your employees understand how to review these new SDSs.

After viewing this webinar, you will learn:

  • The requirement of the new GHS and HazCom 2012 at a high level, with specific focus on the GHS changes and employer training obligations
  • How to understand and review the new Safety Data Sheets
  • OSHA’s training expectations for meeting the December 1, 2013 deadline
  • Strategies for meeting all HazCom 2012 deadlines while maintaining compliance and avoiding the risk of potential OSHA citations and penalties
