Hazard Communication: Upcoming Changes May Make Compliance Even More Challenging—Are You Ready? - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

Program Length: 1 hour


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Discover proposed changes to HazCom regulations and how they could impact your workplace through this informative webinar on May 27, 2021 presented by safety expert Kathryn McMahon & Beeta B. Lashkari.



The current version of the Hazard Communication (HazCom) Standard, implementing the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS), has been around for several years.  However, in its recently released Top 10 list, OSHA ranked HazCom as the second most frequently cited violations.  

According to OSHA's latest top 10 list, the HazCom standard (29 CFR 1910.1200) was violated 3,199 times. Industries frequently cited for HazCom violations include accommodation and food services, construction, manufacturing, waste management and remediation services, and wholesale trade. 

It is clear that businesses still struggle to comply, and now changes to the HazCom Standard are forthcoming, which may further complicate the compliance puzzle. 

This webinar will discuss what mistakes environmental and safety managers are making that are resulting in enforcement actions, as well as delve into the changes OSHA has proposed for the HazCom Standard, and how those changes may impact operations.      

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to: 

  • Recognize the basic elements of HazCom compliance,
  • Avoid many of the mistakes that make HazCom one of OSHA’s most commonly cited violations each year,
  • Interpret the proposed changes to the HazCom regulations, and
  • Understand how the proposed changes may impact practices and procedures at your facility.
