HazMat: What You Need to Know

> Video Training Resources > HazMat: What You Need to Know

15 Minutes

This Hazcom training video helps you meet mandated training requirements for OSHA's revised GHS Hazard Communication Standard.

The OSHA Hazard Communication Standard (HCS or HazCom) requires that employees who work with potentially hazardous chemicals receive information about how to use these substances safely. This includes knowing how to read and understand the newly revised Globally Harmonized System (GHS) labels and 16-section Safety Data Sheets.

As the GHS format is implemented, hazardous materials arriving at your warehouse or work site will appear with these new, strictly defined GHS labels and Safety Data Sheets (SDS). Your workforce needs to be prepared for this new way of presenting information that helps them recognize dangers and follow best practices for working safely.

This video explains:

  • Chemical types and methods of exposure
  • The elements of GHS labels and SDSs
  • Pictograms and signal words
  • Hazard statements and precautionary statements
  • The importance of using PPE when required

HazMat: What Makes a Chemical Hazardous?

While some chemicals are not considered hazardous, many can be categorized as physical hazards or as health hazards. Physical hazards may catch fire easily, react in contact with other substances —even air or water— or explode in response to shock, pressure, or high temperature. Health hazards either cause “acute” (immediate) harm: corrosives that burn, irritants that generate allergic reactions, or poisons that result in sickness or death. Or they cause “chronic” (long-term) damage: carcinogens which cause cancer and chemicals that cause birth defects or interfere with normal body functions.

With sample labels and SDSs onscreen, this Hazmat training DVD or online training will help viewers learn to recognize all 8 pictograms. They'll see the locations of the various label elements and how these elements work together. And they'll see all 16 sections of the new Safety Data Sheet so they'll know where to go for additional details.

The number one goal of HazMat (HazCom) training is to reduce accidents and injuries. Use this informative Hazmat training video to show your workers how to access critical information and encourage them to put that knowledge to work—keeping themselves and their coworkers safe on the job.
