Are your workers able to identify and safely handle, store, and dispose of chemicals used in your operations? Not only do you have to be worried about hazards on the floor during manufacturing or maintenance, you also need to pay particular attention to controlling materials during transport.

Having a comprehensive plan in place not only minimizes your liability, but also minimizes the dangers in your workplace.

Join us for an information-packed webinar, specifically for California employers, to help you decipher HazCom regulations and MSDSs, and update your labeling and handling of hazardous materials in the workplace. Bring your managers along as we explain what you need to know. You'll learn:

  • How to comply with the Cal/OSHA Hazard Communication standard
  • The key components of a hazardous communication program, and how to keep your program up-to-date
  • How to use the your hazcom program to deal with spills, fires and accidents
  • How to assess whether a material is a hazard or a risk
  • Strategies to maintain current MSDSs for each hazardous material in your facility
  • How to catalog and prepare warning labels for containers to prevent misuse or dangerous interactions
  • How to train workers on the proper use of chemicals in your facility
