Title:

Compliance With The HCS Secondary Container Labeling And SDS Requirements: Strategies For Success

SKU:WC-1023323
Date / Time: Recorded
Format: Webinar
Description:

The June 2016 Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) deadline has come and gone. While OSHA expected all covered groups—manufacturers, distributors and employers—would be in full compliance with the GHS changes, many manufacturers missed their deadline for reclassifying chemicals and authoring new SDSs and labels.

This means employers face the challenge of managing a HazCom program that hasn’t had a chance to catch up to OSHA’s effective dates for the transition. And, the reality is that employers’ HazCom libraries may still include some, or possibly mostly older formatted material safety data sheets (MSDS), due in part to manufacturers not having completed their reclassification and re-authoring work, leaving employers to fend for themselves.

With safety data sheet libraries (SDS), libraries are in a state of transition, that also presents additional problems for hazardous chemical inventory lists, workplace labeling systems, and employee training, which must include information about MSDSs and SDSs so long as both exist in the inventory and may need to be updated when SDSs finally do arrive to include any new hazard information that wasn’t previously associated/identified with the chemicals.

Join us for insights into what the standard now requires from a holistic perspective. Special attention will be paid to explaining the impact on labels and SDSs, what will be required in the near future, and what approaches to take for achieving cost effective compliance.

It’s time to sort through lingering confusion and master the difficult task of ensuring that your organization is in compliance with the HCS, which requires employers to update alternative workplace labeling and hazard communication programs as necessary and provide additional employee training for any newly identified physical or health hazards.
