Conference Description:

Discussion of the new regulations affecting Hazard Communication and how these regulations interact with Global Harmonization. OSHA's Hazard Communication Standard has been in effect since 1986, with very few changes. Now OSHA has updated the Standard to make it compatible with the UN's International Standard, as well as those practices in the European Union. The changes are being phased in over the next three years. The first wave of change took effect in December, 2013. New phases of the changes follow in rapid succession.

Why Should you Attend:
If you work with Hazardous chemicals in any capacity or if you own a business where hazardous materials are used or stored you must be aware of the requirements of the new Hazard Communication Regulation Requirements and how these regulations reflect Global Harmonization requirements.

To demonstrate the methods for communicating chemical hazards, including labels, pictograms, and written descriptions
