OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard, also known as “Right to Know Law,” or HazCom is in Federal Regulation (29 CFR 1910.1200). OSHA made changes to modify the Standard and align it with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS), a worldwide Standard in 2012.

The regulation requires chemical manufacturers and employers to communicate chemical hazard information to employees. Students will review:

  • The Standard
  • Company written control programs
  • Safety data sheets (SDS)
  • Labeling and hazard classifications and associated pictograms
  • The risks of exposure to hazardous chemicals, controls, and PPE
