Created specifically to assist cleaning and maintenance facilities of all types, in complying with federal, state and municipal Hazard Communication regulations, these training products also address the major education and training requirements in these chemical hazard laws. Our training products on "Hazard Communication in Cleaning and Maintenance Operations" introduce employees to the Hazard Communication regulations and provide training on the various types of chemicals found in cleaning and maintenance environments. This includes proper labeling for Globally Harmonized System (GHS) Safety Data Sheets and container labels, toxins, corrosives, irritants, flammables, combustibles and gases.
Exposure to hazardous chemicals is one of the most serious threats facing American workers today according to U.S. Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis. The Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) is now aligned with the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals. This particular update to the Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) will provide a common and coherent approach to classifying chemicals and communicating hazard information on labels and safety data sheets. Once implemented, the revised standard will improve the quality and consistency of hazard information in the workplace, making it safer for workers by providing easily understandable information on appropriate handling and safe use of hazardous chemicals.
