Hazard Communication Training Program (including GHS revisions):

Hazard Communication Training Program (including GHS revisions) Prepared by Consultation Education & Training (CET) Division Michigan Occupational Safety & Health Administration Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (517) 322-1809 (Revised : 08/23/13)

PowerPoint Presentation:



Labels There are several new label elements: Symbols called “Pictograms” Signal Words Hazard Statements Precautionary Statements Product Identification Supplier/Manufacturer Identification

Labels: Shipping:

Labels: Shipping Effective June 1, 2015 all shipping labels will be required to have all GHS label elements DOT Shipping Flammable liquids, toxic, n.o.s. (contains XYZ) UN 1992 Shipping Container Label (55 gallon/200 liter drum ) Pictograms within DOT label

PowerPoint Presentation:

Transport "Pictograms" Flammable Liquid Flammable Gas Flammable Aerosol Flammable solid Self-Reactive Substances Pyrophorics (Spontaneously Combustible) Self-Heating Substances Substances, which in contact with water, emit flammable gases (Dangerous When Wet) Oxidizing Gases Oxidizing Liquids Oxidizing Solids Explosive Divisions 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 Explosive Division 1.4 Explosive Division 1.5 Explosive Division 1.6 Compressed Gases Acute Toxicity (Poison): Oral, Dermal, Inhalation Corrosive   Marine Pollutant Organic Peroxides

DOT and MIOSHA Labels:

DOT and MIOSHA Labels DOT labels may take precedence over similar GHS pictograms for shipping containers. DOT does not have labels that correspond to the “Health Hazard” or the “Acute Toxicity” (less severe = exclamation mark).

Labels: Pictograms:

Labels: Pictograms There are 9 pictograms. Only 8 are regulated by MIOSHA Health Hazards Physical Hazards Environmental Hazards (Regulated by DEQ) DEQ

Labels: Pictograms – Health Hazards:

Labels: Pictograms – Health Hazards Acute toxicity (Less Severe): Irritant Dermal sensitizer Acute toxicity (harmful) Narcotic effects Respiratory tract irritation Acute toxicity (Severe) Acute = short-term effect

Labels: Pictograms – Health Hazards (continued):

Labels: Pictograms – Health Hazards (continued) Skin corrosion Serious eye damage/ Eye irritation Carcinogen Respiratory sensitizer Reproductive toxicity Target organ toxicity Mutagenicity Aspiration Hazard

Labels: Pictograms – Physical Hazards:

Labels: Pictograms – Physical Hazards Flammables Self reactives Pyrophorics Self heating Emits flammable gas Organic peroxides Explosives Self reactives Organic peroxides

Labels: Pictograms – Physical Hazards (continued):

Labels: Pictograms – Physical Hazards (continued ) Corrosive to Metals Gases under Pressure Oxidizer

Labels: Signal Word:

Labels: Signal Word These are words used 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.

Labels: Hazard Statement:

Labels: Hazard Statement There are specific hazard statements that must appear on the label based on the chemical hazard classification. Examples: Flammable liquid and vapor Causes skin irritation May cause cancer

Labels and other forms of warning – Precautionary Statements:

Labels and other forms of warning – Precautionary Statements Recommended measures related to: Prevention Response Storage Disposal Examples: Wear respiratory protection Wash with soap and water Store in a well ventilated place Not a mandate for employers/employees to follow.

Label: Identification:

Label: Identification Product identification (i.e. name of product) Supplier identification: Address Telephone number

Label: Other information:

Label: Other information Other information that may be included on the label: Physical state Color Hazards not otherwise classified Route of exposure Storage and disposal Hazard prevention and emergency response instructions

Label: Sample Can you identify each label component?:

ToxiFlam (Contains: XYZ)     Danger! Toxic If Swallowed, Flammable Liquid and Vapor Do not eat, drink or use tobacco when using this product. Wash hands thoroughly after handling. Keep container tightly closed. Keep away from heat/sparks/open flame. - No smoking. Wear protective gloves and eye/face protection. Ground container and receiving equipment. Use explosion-proof electrical equipment. Take precautionary measures against static discharge. Use only non-sparking tools. Store in cool/well-ventilated place.   IF SWALLOWED: Immediately call a POISON CONTROL CENTER or doctor/physician. Rinse mouth. In case of fire, use water fog, dry chemical, CO 2 , or "alcohol" foam. See Safety Data Sheet for further details regarding safe use of this product. MyCompany, MyStreet, MyTown NJ 00000, Tel: 444 966 6666 Label: Sample C an you identify each label component ? Signal Word Hazard Statements Precautionary Statements Product Identifier Supplier Identification Supplemental Information Pictograms (Flammable and Acute Toxicity – Severe)

Secondary Container Labels:

Secondary Container Labels Excerpt from the Hazard Communication Standard (f): (6) Workplace labeling. Except as provided in paragraphs (7) and (8) of this section, the employer shall ensure that each container of hazardous chemicals in the workplace is labeled, tagged or marked with either: ( i ) The information specified under paragraphs (1)( i ) through (v) of this section for labels on shipped containers [GHS Label]; or, (ii) Product identifier and words, pictures, symbols, or combination thereof, which provide at least general information regarding the hazards of the chemicals, and which, in conjunction with the other information immediately available to employees under the hazard communication program, will provide employees with the specific information regarding the physical and health hazards of the hazardous chemical [e.g. HMIS, NFPA or other label system].

Labels: Secondary containers:

Labels: Secondary containers Must be consistent with the revised Haz Com standard No conflicting hazard warnings or pictograms. May use written materials (e.g., signs, placards, etc.) in lieu of affixing labels to individual stationary process containers. Employer can use GHS compliant labels (same as shipping). NFPA Label HEALTH FIRE PHYSICAL HZ PPE HMIS Label Must include notation of chronic health effects
