Hazard Communication Training Toolkit debuts

Aug. 19, 2013
Toolkit aims to help with compliance for OSHA revisions.

SafeLink Consulting has introduced a Hazard Communication (HazCom) Training Toolkit.

The toolkit allows easy, cost-effective, and timely compliance with OSHA’s revised Hazard Communication Standard. It also clarifies the new requirements, provides OSHA-required employee training, reduces the risk of certain types of OSHA visits and/or fines, and maximizes productivity. This can often leads to increased revenues.

OSHA’s revision is based on the March 2012 adoption of certain components of the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals.

By the Dec. 1, 2013 deadline, employers will be required to train employees to recognize and understand new classifications, labelings, universal symbols, and standardized safety data sheets. In addition, under future deadlines, businesses will be required to add global symbols identifying hazardous products, and be required to use standardized Safety Data Sheets.

The HazCom Toolkit was developed by top dental industry safety consultants, who are authorized trainers under OSHA's Outreach Program, FDA Title 21 consultants and internal auditors, and approved DAMAS certification auditors in North America and Asia.

Mary Borg, SafeLink president, said: “People have been talking, worrying and wondering about the OSHA revisions for over a year, but the truth is nobody’s developed a concise, complete and accurate system, a step-by-step answer, to make it easy for the business owner to say ‘Off my list. On to more profitable activities.’ Luckily, we were in a great position to have done so.”

SafeLink’s HazCom Toolkit is priced at $155. It includes:

Step-by-step employer instructions and guide on CD
OSHA’s Revised Hazard Communication Standard
Employee training DVD
Explanation of the globally harmonized system
Pictogram labels and poster
Training test and certificate of completion
Training register
Sample HazCom program for use in developing a custom program
