Workforces in nearly every industry rely on hazardous chemicals every day, whether for cleaning, manufacturing, or business processes. And with the final deadline for compliance with the HazCom 2012 standard approaching, it’s more important than ever to ensure employee safety through proper hazard communication. To better equip employers with key information about chemical labeling, Graphic Products is hosting a HazCom 2012 webinar on Wednesday, May 25, at 10:30 a.m. PST/1:30 p.m. EST.
“Workers have a right to understand the hazards in their workplaces, and employers have a responsibility to communicate what those hazards are. A consistent approach is needed, and that’s what HazCom 2012 offers,” said Brian McFadden, Compliance Specialist with Graphic Products.
The 30-minute webinar led by McFadden will cover the HazCom 2012 standard and how its consistent approach can help create a safer workplace.
The HazCom 2012 Labeling Webinar will help employers:
- Understand how HazCom 2012 classifies chemical hazards
- Recognize the required elements of a Safety Data Sheet
- Develop and print HazCom-compliant labels
Following the webinar, attendees are invited to participate in a question-and-answer session with McFadden using live chat functions. Attendees can register online for the webinar or call 866.927.8573 for more information.
“The HazCom rules are here to protect employees, and applying them effectively will make your facility a safer place,” McFadden said. “But to use this system, you need to know how it works. We can help.”
