This program is aimed at supervisors, managers or chemical specialists who are responsible for OSHA or WHMIS health and safety in the workplace. In the USA we will be discussing GHS within OSHA 29CFR 1910.1200 and in Canada, GHS within WHMIS. Students will receive a copy of the regulations (Book1) and our Guide to the Regulations (Book 2). Trainer training kits can be purchased separately and used to teach back at the office or plant.
Classification under GHS can be very overwhelming. Each chemical needs to be classified on its own for both physical and health hazards, then you must determine what category the chemical falls into. Mixtures are even more complex. When do you apply the bridging principles? How do you calculate the acute toxicity data? What in the world is an M factor?
Required publications are included in price.
These questions and more will be addressed in our 3-day classification course. Upon completion of this class, students will understand how to classify both pure chemicals and mixtures under OSHA Hazcom 2012.
