From the Newnan – Coweta Chamber of Commerce

at the Delta Community Credit Union Conference Room 

By December 1, 2013, 43 million U.S. workers were required to be trained on OSHA’s updated Hazard Communication Standard (HCS), which brings HazCom into alignment with the Globally Harmonized System (GHS).

“Exposure to hazardous chemicals is one of the most serious threats facing American workers today,” said U.S. Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis. “Revising OSHA’s Hazard Communication standard will improve the quality and consistency of hazard information, making it safer for workers to do their jobs and easier for employers to stay competitive.”

Employers with even one hazardous chemical in their inventories, and one employee who could be affected by it, are required to provide training. Compliance with the training component is critical, because an untrained employee is an unsafe employee, and that has implications for everyone in the workplace.

It’s your responsibility to get employees up to speed, so how can you train employees on the updated HazCom labels and Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) without spending hours researching OSHA regulations and developing  training?

The Coweta County Safety Council is holding a seminar on February 14th and 28th to help you navigate the  training requirements of the Revised Hazard Communication Standard.

What Every Employee Needs to Know About HazCom & GHS:

The Coweta County Safety Council has been recently formed to provide guidance and training to businesses in Coweta County. It is comprised of safety professionals who desire to share their collective knowledge to help local industry comply with OSHA regulation and ultimately keep the Coweta County workforce healthy and safe. The Safety Council believes that it takes the combined efforts of local companies and community resources to effectively promote safe work practices.
