CHICAGO, IL (PRWEB) January 11, 2013
MSDSonline, the leading provider of sustainable cloud-based EH&S compliance solutions, launched a new online training course today entitled, “Hazard Communication 2012 Awareness Refresher,” to help employers comply with OSHA’s first GHS-related deadline. The Dec. 1, 2013, deadline, as outlined in the revised Hazard Communication Standard (HazCom 2012), requires all employees exposed to hazardous chemicals to be trained on the new GHS prescribed label elements and safety data sheet format.
The new course is the third offered by MSDSonline to address employer training needs related to OSHA’s adoption of GHS. The other two courses are “Hazard Communication 2012,” a comprehensive exploration of OSHA’s revised HazCom Standard, and “Safety Data Sheets,” a course that delves into the 16 sections of the new GHS formatted SDS.
“Training has always been a key component of the Hazard Communication Standard. With GHS adoption, we expect OSHA will be paying even more attention to employee training — so it’s important for employers to take this first deadline seriously,” said Mike Flynn, MSDSonline vice president of product development.
Flynn continued, “Our new course is designed to accomplish two important tasks: first, to get employees up to speed fast on GHS formatted labels and safety data sheets — which have already made their way into many U.S. facilities — and second, to serve as a brief HazCom refresher for those employees who have previously trained on the key elements of the standard.”
MSDSonline cloud-based training courses can be deployed through the MSDSonline system or integrated into a user’s legacy learning management system (LMS). Online workplace training has been growing in
