Safety Module Program

About 32 million workers are potentially exposed to one or more chemical hazards on a daily basis. There are an estimated 575,000 existing chemical products, and hundreds of new ones being introduced annually. This poses a serious problem for exposed workers and their employer. The OSHA Hazard Communication Standard (OSHA - 29 CFR 1910.1200) establishes uniform requirements to make sure that the hazards of all chemicals imported into, produced, or used in U.S. workplaces are evaluated, and that this hazard information is transmitted to all affected workers.

  • Understand the new changes created by the Global Harmonization System (GHS)
