ICC’s GHS Hazcom 2012 Training Classes

ICC Compliance Center is excited to announce training dates for courses related to OSHA’s Hazcom 2012 (GHS standard). Classes are scheduled in our Niagara Falls, NY and Houston, TX training centers, and are soon to be scheduled around the country in the fall. We have four classes to choose from: A half-day General Awareness class; a one day “What’s Changed?”; a two day Manager/Supervisor class and a three day GHS Classification class. On-site training classes and webinars will be available soon.

We have four classes to choose from, depending on your interest. A half-day General Awareness, a one day What’s Changed, a two day Manager/Supervisor and a three day GHS Classification class.

Over the past few decades, the United Nations (UN) has been attempting to create a system with similar goals, that would be used (with possible minor modifications) on a world-wide scale. This system is called the Globally Harmonized System, or GHS.

OSHA has responded by modifying the hazard communication standard to reflect many of the concepts found in the GHS. These elements include: classification of hazardous substances, information to be provided on labels, and information to be found on material safety data sheets (or, as the GHS calls them, safety data sheets).

Training is the first deadline in the phased in final rule that was effective May 26, 2012. Training on the new elements must be completed by Dec 1, 2013.

Courses start in September. Please contact Sandra Miller for more information. Custom courses available upon request.
