The Hazard Communication for Managers and Supervisors online training course is an advanced-level course designed for supervisors, managers, and employers. Offering introductory and specialized materials to enable participants to better recognize, eliminate and/or reduce occupational safety and health hazards in work environments in which there are hazardous chemicals.
Participants in the course will cover in detail OSHA’s revised Globally Harmonized Communication (GHS) requirements for hazard classification, as well as safety data sheets and product labels. Developed directly from OSHA’s Hazard Communication (HazCom) requirements as outlined in the revised OSHA Hazard Communication Standard (HCS), this course is intended to ensure all participants meet their basic training requirements for hazard communication.
NOTICE: We suggest that all supervisors and managers also take OSHA Education School’s Hazard Communication Advanced for All Industries online course, which provides a thorough background and introduction to applicable OSHA HazCom standard.
