OSHA GHS Hazard Communication Standard Webcast


Receive in depth training on OSHA's Hazard Communication Standard (29 CFR 1910.1200) and the United Nation’s Globally Harmonized System (GHS) for the classification and labeling of hazardous chemicals at this live, online course.


You will learn the latest requirements for hazardous chemical labels, Safety Data Sheets (SDSs), and hazard communication plans. You’ll also learn how to classify hazardous chemicals: what chemicals are covered and which are exempt, and how to implement an effective hazard communication program—to ensure that all workers can recognize and understand the symbols and pictograms on labels, as well as the hazard statements and precautions required on labels and SDSs.


Bring your questions to this live interactive online training, where you will learn:

  • The GHS classification system
  • How OSHA’s hazard communication system differs from GHS
  • The meaning of GHS hazard statements, precautionary statements, signal words, and pictograms
  • What information must be in each of the 16 SDS sections, and how to use that information to protect your health and safety
  • What signal words, hazard and precautionary statements, and pictograms are required on labels
  • The difference between workplace and supplier labels
  • How to label stationary process equipment
  • How to avoid the most common mistakes made on product labels and SDSs
  • What must be in your site’s written hazard communication program and when it must be updated
  • Worker training: who must be trained, what must be covered, and how to document
  • Ways to protect yourself and your coworkers from chemical hazards
  • How to handle problems, such as missing or inaccurate SDSs, imported products, old labels, and chemicals brought on-site by contractors
  • How to implement an effective hazard communication program at your site


The course handbook, How to Comply with the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard, is provided as a downloadable document. The handbook clearly describes procedures for developing a hazard communication plan. Instructions for using SDSs, labeling containers, keeping records, and training employees are included. Compliance checklists will help you ensure that nothing is missed in your OSHA-required hazard communication program.
