Hazard Communication Update Training Announcement
This message is from the Environment, Safety, Health and Quality (ESH&Q) Section for all active Fermilab employees, users and visitors.
In the next week you will be contacted via the TRAIN system to complete a new online training course titled GHS Hazard Communication Update (FN000496).
This course will address the training requirements of the revised Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Hazard Communication Standard which aligned itself with the United Nations Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). The purpose of this system is to standardize the classification, labels, and Safety Data Sheets (SDS) of hazardous chemicals worldwide. The benefits of this system include improved protection of employer/employee health and work environments, promotion of sound chemical management, facilitation of trade, and reduction of cost and time needed to comply with multiple classification systems.
Learn more about GHS by viewing the Energy Facility Contractors Group (EFCOG) 5-minute video located under Must See IH Video
on the Industrial Hygiene webpage.
Questions on the revised OSHA standard and its affect on Fermilab's Hazard Communication Program should be directed to your Division/Section/Center Industrial Hygiene Representative.
