THURSDAY, OCTOBER 3, :30-4:30PM Science Laboratory Safety Webinar
Welcome Facilitating the webinar today… Jami Inman Secondary Science Consultant and Safety Contact North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (919)
Session Objectives: To identify the requirements by the Hazardous Communication Standard 2012 for mandated training by December 1, To share resources for the training session. To provide a forum for collaboration in meeting challenges and sharing successful strategies.
How Hazard Communication Works
Required Training Employers are already required to provide effective information and training on the hazardous chemicals in their work areas Must be done at the time of initial assignment to work with a chemical, and when a new chemical hazard is introduced into the work area May be done by chemical or by hazard (e.g., flammable liquids) In addition, the training required includes the following: (h)(3)(iv) The details of the hazard communication program developed by the employer, including an explanation of the labels received on shipped containers and the workplace labeling system used by their employer, the safety data sheet, including the order of information and how employees can obtain and use the appropriate information.
Required Training (continued) Since HazCom 2012 is requiring new label and SDS, OSHA has specified that employers must provide training on the new approach. This training will help ensure that workers can access and use the information on the new labels and SDSs effectively. New labels and SDSs are already being produced and are coming into American workplaces
Required Training (continued) Specifically, OSHA has stated: Employers shall train employees regarding the new label elements and safety data sheet format by December 1, The 2013 training thus does NOT include a requirement to re-train on all hazards. The training is to ensure that employees understand the new label and SDS approach.
Training Considerations How and when will the training be conducted? Who will do the training? Can this training be combined with other training needs? How will you document that training has been provided?
