Upcoming Webinars Help Ease Concerns Around Complex Hazardous Chemical Compliance Tasks
While the phase-in period for OSHA's first alignment with GHS might be over, your obligations are not. Getting and staying compliant with HazCom is vitally important, especially given its top ranking on OSHA’s most frequently cited standards list and the Agency’s continued penalty increases. And with OSHA currently planning to revise the HazCom standard to align with Revision 7 of the GHS, you may need to be prepared for new changes to come. All of this proves it’s more important than ever to understand the nuances of HazCom compliance and best practices to keep your workers safe.
Still need help? VelocityEHS will host two upcoming webinars aimed at educating safety professionals on the latest issues and trends in chemical compliance. Each live webinar – hosted by EHS experts –offers information and advice on a variety of topics to help reduce risk in the workplace and stay in compliance with evolving regulations.
