Vendor NewsOSHA’s alignment with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) is bringing big changes – and some confusion – to the U.S. workplace. J. J. Keller & Associates has developed an online, subscription-based service that enables companies to easily manage the labeling, classification, and other aspects of the new HazCom standard. J. J. Keller’s HazCom Program Manager™ features a suite of tools to develop and maintain a hazard communication program that is fully compliant with the new regulations.

GHS Labeling
A major feature of HazCom Program Manager is the ability to create, customize, save, and print your own chemical labels using a wizard-style interface. Simply choose a labeling system (GHS or other), use the wizard to fill in the required label elements, and choose the size and style. Users can print in-house labels directly from their computer at no charge, or easily order them through for an additional fee.

The deadline to train all employees on the revised HazCom/GHS standard is December 1, 2013. With HazCom Program Manager, users can develop and conduct the necessary training as well as ongoing refresher courses with a variety of customizable training resources.

Safety Data Sheets
HazCom Program Manager’s powerful SDS feature allows users to search, print, and maintain a vast library of up-to-date Safety Data Sheets. Automated alerts notify users when new versions of their active SDSs are available.
Chemical Inventory
Manage and audit your chemical inventory with HazCom Program Manager’s Chemical Recordkeeping feature. Track chemical usage by location and work area, and use the information to create online SDS binders.

Written Plans
Users can develop detailed HazCom written plans using customizable templates covering all pertinent topics, from fire prevention to PPE.

Direct Access to HazCom Experts
HazCom Program Manager subscribers receive access to J. J. Keller’s Personal Assistant, where they can submit questions directly to Keller’s team of subject matter experts and receive a response within 24 hours.
“There is much more to OSHA’s new HazCom standard than just labeling and SDSs,” said Jacqueline Jurmu, Product Design Manager for J. J. Keller’s HazCom Program Manager. “Our new service gives safety professionals the ability to develop and maintain a comprehensive HazCom program that keeps them compliant with ever-changing regulations.”
