Update on HazCom 2012 - Toolik Field Station

Hazard Communication 2012: One Year of Implementation July 25, 2013 1:00-2:30 PM Hazard Communication GENERAL Updated to include NEW Global Harmonization Standard (GHS)

2 Introduction The purpose of this training is to familiarize you with the Occupational Health and Safety Administrations (OSHA) Hazard Communication standard 29 CFR 1910.1200 & Alaskas standard 8 AAC 61.1110 (adds the requirement to include physical agents)

3 Classification HazCom 2012 covers workplace hazards For effects such as sensitization or CMRs (carcinogens, mutagens, reproductive hazards) that have a hazard category that is divided into subcategories A and B: If the data is available, then you must classify into the most hazardous sub-category If the data does not allow classification into the subcategory, then you may use the category

You may include GHS hazard categories that are not covered by the HCS 2013 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) Required Training, cont. 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 hazard information. Required Training, cont. Since HazCom 2012 is requiring a 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, cont. Specifically, OSHA has stated: Employers shall train employees regarding the new label elements and safety data sheet format by December 1, 2013

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 Other Factors While new labels and SDSs are required to be provided by manufacturers and importers by June 1, 2015, employers have until June 1, 2016 to make adjustments to their workplace programs for

any new hazards identified as a result of the transition to the GHS system If workplace labeling changes (i.e., alternative systems are used), workers will have to be trained on this as welltiming will depend on when the workplace labeling is updated Training on Label Elements Labels on shipped containers of hazardous chemicals will be changing by June 1, 2015 The primary change is that information on

labels has been standardized There are certain types of information required to appear on labels All suppliers have the same requirements, so labels should be more consistent in approach than current labels Label Requirements Labels on shipped containers must include: Product Identifier

Signal Word Pictogram Hazard Statement(s) Precautionary Statement(s) Supplier Identification (Name, Address, Phone Number) HCS Pictograms and Hazards TM
