Employers that have hazardous chemicals in their workplaces are required by OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard (29 CFR 1910.1200) to implement a written hazard communication program. The program must include labels on containers of hazardous chemicals, safety data sheets (SDSs) for hazardous chemicals, and training for workers. Each employer must also describe in a written program how it will meet the requirements of the HCS in each of these areas.
In FY 2021 HazCom was 5th in the list of OSHA's Top 10 most cited Standards.
This training will include small group activities. Each participant is asked to submit to MIIA’s Risk Management trainer Bridget McGuiness, an SDS from two chemicals they use in their work environment. A number of the SDS submitted by students will be crafted into one or more hands-on activities.
MIIA is able to issue TCH credits for this course for the renewal of a MA DEP Wastewater license. 1 training hour = 1 TCH. Participants MUST remain on camera individually to receive a certificate or rewards credit for this training.
This webinar qualifies the MIIA member for .5% credit under the FY22 MIIA Rewards Program under the Workers Compensation Category
