Overview

Most accidents at work can be avoided, and accidents involving chemicals are no exception. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has issued a rule called the “Hazard Communication Standard,” also known as HAZCOM, or the “Right to Know“ law. The primary purpose of this rule is to help workers know how to work safely with chemicals. This video program educates employees about their rights as workers, as well as how to interpret GHS, the United Nations Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals.

This course explores types of hazards and routes of entry. Workers learn what pictograms and other label information mean to them and how to read safety data sheets. By communicating this information to employees, you can help avoid chemical accidents in your workplace.
