Hazard Communication ( HAZCOM 2012 29CFR 1910.1200) and the Globally Harmonized

System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) OSHA Mandate The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires employers to provide their employees with a safe and healthy workplace. OSHA sets standards for safety, chemical exposure and information on chemical hazards (right-to know). OSHA Standards are enforced in the private sector by Federal OSHA in some states and by State OSHA in other states. State OSHA enforces the OSHA regulations in the public sector,

including public schools Enforcement is accomplished by inspection and penalties for noncompliance Employees can file complaints about unsafe conditions. HazCom 2012 Standard The Occupational Safety and Administrations (OSHA) previous HazCom standard gave you the right to know. HazCom 2012 gives you the right to understand: The possible dangers you could be exposed to by the hazardous materials you are coming into contact with. How to work with hazardous chemicals safely.

Purpose of Hazard Communication Update OSHA Updated the Hazcom Standard to conform to the Globally Harmonized System for the Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) The GHS is an international effort to standardize hazard communication. This update provides a common and coherent approach to classifying chemicals and communicating hazard information on labels and safety data sheets These new labeling elements and SDS requirements will improve

worker understanding of the hazards associated with the chemicals in their workplace Employer Requirements Maintain a HazCom 2012 compliant Safety Data Sheet for each chemical used in the workplace Ensure each hazardous chemical in the workplace is properly labeled. Provide employees with training on hazardous chemicals used in their work area. Develop, implement and maintain a written HazCom program that

covers all the items listed above as well as includes a list of all hazardous chemicals in the workplace What are Hazardous Chemicals? Physical Hazards Health Hazards Fire Hazards Explosion Hazards Reactive Hazards

Local Effects (e.g. Irritants, Corrosives) Systemic Effects (e.g. Carcinogens, Toxic agents, Sensitizers) Target Organ Effects (e.g. Neurotoxins, Respiratory Toxins, Reproductive Toxins, etc. Simple Asphyxiants, Pyrophoric Gases or Hazards not otherwise classified

Safety Data Sheets (SDS) Previously known as Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) New uniform format including section number, heading and associated information Standardized placement of information Give necessary information about how to safely work with a chemical. Must be readily accessible. Must be written in English. Safety Data Sheet

Section Format 1. Identification 2. Hazards identification 3. Composition/information on ingredients 4. First-aid measures 5. Fire-fighting measures 8. Exposure controls/personal protection 9. Physical and chemical properties 10. Stability and reactivity

11. Toxicological information 12. Ecological information 13. Disposal considerations 6. Accidental release measures 14. Transport information 7. Handling and storage 15. Regulatory information 16. Other information, including date of preparation or last revision Label Requirements

All Hazardous chemicals intended for use in the workplace must have an OSHA Hazcom 2012 label unless: Purchased before June 1, 2015 Exempt Pesticides Consumer Products Drugs Food and Food Additives Cosmetics Hazcom 2012 Label

Product Identifier How the hazardous chemical is identified. This can be (but is not limited to) the chemical name, code number or batch number. The manufacturer, importer or distributor can decide the appropriate product identifier The same product identifier must be both on the label and in section 1 of the SDS HazCom 2012 Pictograms

Signal Words Used to indicate the relative level of severity of hazard and alert the reader to a potential hazard on the label There are now only two signal words that are recognized under OSHAs HazCom 2012. Danger is used for the more severe hazards Warning is used for the less severe hazards

Danger May cause fire or explosion; strong oxidizer Causes severe skin burns and eye damage Warning Harmful if swallowed Hazard Statements A statement assigned to a hazard class and category that describes the nature of the hazard(s) of a chemical, including, where appropriate, the degree of hazard. All of the applicable hazard statements must appear on the label

Hazard statements are specific to the classification categories Example: Flammable Liquid Category 1: Extremely flammable liquid and vapor Category 2: Highly flammable liquid and vapor Category 3: Flammable liquid and vapor Category 4: Combustible liquid Precautionary Statements A phrase that describes recommended measures to be taken to minimize or prevent

adverse effects resulting from exposure to a hazardous chemical, or improper storage or handling of a hazardous chemical Examples of Precautionary Phrases: Keep away from heat, sparks, and open flame. No smoking. Wash hands thoroughly after handling. Wear protective gloves and eye protection. Store in a well-ventilated place. Keep cool. Workplace Labeling All chemical containers must be labeled.

Do not use a chemical if a label has been destroyed or defaced. Some chemicals are broken down into smaller containers. Any small container must have a label to protect yourself and your coworkers. Training Employees must receive information and training regarding: The requirements of HazCom 2012

Locations where hazardous chemicals are present HazCom 2012 compliant Safety Data Sheets HazCom 2012 compliant Labels The schools Written HazCom Program Information on the hazards of the specific chemicals used in our school. Written HazCom Program Informs employees of their employers plan for complying with HazCom 2012.

Safety Data Sheets Labels Training Requirements The Written HazCom Program should always be available by request. Should include a list of hazardous materials known to be present in the school. Protecting Yourself Wear proper PPE (personal protective equipment) as

recommended on the label and/or SDS when using chemicals Always wash your hands thoroughly after using a chemical Locate nearest eyewash station or emergency shower before handling chemicals Work with your supervisor to properly dispose of hazardous materials Know your companys spill procedures and emergency response plan
