OSHA's Chemical Hazard Communication Standard is based on a simple concept that employees have both a need and a right to know the hazards and identities of the chemicals they are exposed to while working. This HazCom Standard is known as OSHA's Worker Right to Know Standard and is designed to provide you with the information you need to work safely.
This training covers basic OSHA requirements for proper communication methods about hazardous chemicals in any workplace, including the modification of OSHA's Hazard Communication Standard to conform with the United Nations' (UN) Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) requirements.
