  • OSHA HAZARD COMMUNICATION 2013 GHS: A WORLDWIDE SYSTEM FOR HAZARD COMMUNICATION

  • Goals & Objectives

    Define what Hazard Communication (HAZCOM) is and its purpose.

    Explain the Global Harmonized System and how it effects HAZCOM.

    Review the four major components of HAZCOM.

    Learn the new Pictograms & understand Safety Data Sheets

  • Why Hazard Communication and Chemical SafetyChemicals are all around us every day.Chemicals can be:Corrosive.Reactive.Flammable. Explosive.Oxidizing.Inert.

    Summary

  • Why Hazard Communication & Chemical SafetyIn many cases, the chemicals you may be dealing with at work are no more dangerous than those you use at home.

    However, in the workplace:Exposure likely more oftenConcentrations likely higherLonger duration of exposure

    Summary

  • Global Harmonized System is :

    Standardizing chemical classifying and labeling on a global scale.

    Internationally Comprehensible.

    Provides consistent and simplified communications.

    Improved labeling provides greater hazard awareness.

    Summary

  • Primary vs. Secondary LabelsPrimary Labels come from manufacturer.

    GHS now mandates how these primary labels must appear.

    Secondary Labels used when roofer places chemical into a smaller secondary container.

    Examples include:gasoline cansspray bottles filled with membrane cleanerbucket full of paintEtc.

    Secondary Labels must provide the same level of information to employees as primary labels. Best practice is to replicate the shipping primary labels.

    Summary

  • Labels: Signal WordUsed to indicate the severity of the hazard and alert employees to the potential hazard.

    Only 2 signal words will appear:DANGER(more severe hazard)WARNING (less severe hazard)

    Not all labels will have a signal word. Some chemicals are not hazardous enough to require that a signal word appear on the label.

    Summary

  • Acceptable Secondary Labeling Procedures. Minimize use of secondary containers, use primary.

    Secondary label must effectively relay same information as primary. Best practice is to duplicate labels for products you often move into secondary containers. (one method is quicklable.com)

    No label required if kept in full control of roofer and used in same shift.www.quicklabel.com

  • Safety Data Sheets (SDS)Previously known as Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS)

    GHS new term is SDS.

    Prior MSDSs had very little standardized format which led to confusion.

    All SDSs will have a consistent 16 section format with consistent terminology

    Summary

  • Safety Data Sheets (SDS)You will receive specific training on the chemicals you work with through safety meetings, tool box talks, and on the job by your foreman.

    Safety Data Sheets are always available.

    Ask your foreman should you wish to review them.
