This Hazard Communication training video will help educate your workers on the hazards in their work areas, AND keep your compliant with the OSHA Standard. This “Right to Know” or HAZCOM training will teach your workers all about chemical hazards, Safety Data Sheets, as well as the importance of each facility’s written Hazard Communication program. This video will cover several key concepts with your trainees:
- What is a Safety Data Sheet and how does it differ from the “old” Material Safety Data Sheet or MSDS?
- What information is included on a Safety Data Sheet and how to read an SDS label
- The importance of understanding how to properly store and use chemicals in the workplace
- What is the Globally Harmonized System or GHS?
- How the standardization of chemical labels brought on by GHS helped alleviate confusion around chemical safety (chemical labels now present information in a uniform manner, standardized symbols are now in place, etc)
- What are the basics that are included in any Hazard Communication Program? (the types of potentially hazardous materials in the workplace, where they are located, how they are labeled, where the Safety Data Sheets are kept, how employees will receive their training, and anything else relevant to chemical safety at your specific facility)
- What are the different “groups” or “classes” of hazardous chemicals and why its important to understand each class, and how they affect the people who use them
- An overview and definition for toxic substances, poisons, corrosives and irritants, acids and bases, as well as flammables and combustibles
- A discussion on flammable gases like hydrogen, propane and acetylene as well as the proper storage such as a flammable materials cabinet
- The importance of recognizing carcinogens and suspected carcinogens and how to use them properly
- What to do in the case of chemical splashes, inhalation, ingestion or skin contact
- What is the concept of “duration of exposure” and why is it important?
- A complete discussion on the importance of proper Personal Protective Equipment and the role it plays in keeping workers safe
- What to do in the case of a leak or spill of a hazardous chemical
- How to properly clean up a chemical spill while containing the spill and minimizing further contamination
- and much more…
