Summary: The Safety and Emergency Planning Committee of the Illinois Section of AWWA has developed a series of webinars to aid Municipalities in developing and/or maintaining their own safety programs. These webinars will provide basic information for individuals to expand to be Municipality specific in order to meet regulatory requirements. Hazardous Material Communication or otherwise known as “Right to Know” is the next topic in the series.
Employees have the right to know what hazards and chemicals are in your workplace. Employers must provide employees with effective information and training concerning hazardous chemicals in their work areas at the time of the initial assignment and whenever a new chemical hazard is introduced in the work area. The information and training must be specific to the kinds of hazards in the workplace in and the particular protective equipment, control measures, and procedures that are necessary.
This webinar will review: OSHA standard 29 CFR 1910.1200; outline the requirements of establishing a written program, new requirements of the Global Harmonized System (GHS), and employee training.
Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback
