Hazard Communication

Employers that have hazardous chemicals in their workplaces are required by OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard (HCS), 29 CFR 1910.1200, to implement a hazard communication program. The program must include labels on containers of hazardous chemicals, safety data sheets (SDSs) for hazardous chemicals, and training for workers. Each employer must also describe in a written program how it will meet the requirements of the HCS in each of these areas. 

This training will cover 

  • Hazard classification for health and physical hazards, as well as classification of mixtures
  • Explanation of the signal word, pictogram, hazard statement and precautionary statements required on each label
  • Explanation of the information provided in each section of the data sheet
  • Hazards associated with chemicals, appropriate measures to take for those hazards, and how to obtain additional information 
  • Written program requirements, and
  • Employee training requirements

Cancellation without penalty may be made up to five working days prior to the seminar date.  Cancellation after that date will be charged 50% of the fee.  You may avoid this charge by transferring your registration to another person.  Registrants who do not cancel are liable for the entire fee.  ALL REFUNDS WILL BE IN THE FORM OF A CREDIT VOUCHER.  This cancellation policy is standard with all Iowa-Illinois Safety Council sponsored programs.
