Hazardous Materials Labels Training Programs and Courses

Hazardous Materials Labels

One of the most important methods for DOT Hazardous Material identification is through the use of container labels. From bottles and drums to trucks and railcars, the labels and placards provide information about the contents of a container such as; what it is, what to do and not to do around it, and who to call in case of an emergency. Because this information is so critical for the safe handling and transporting of these potentially dangerous substances, several organizations have developed €œlabel and placard systems€ to communicate to employees about a container's contents. Unfortunately, these systems may be similar but they are not standardized and do vary.  Our "Hazardous Material Labels" training programs are designed to help employees understand the characteristics of different labeling systems and the ways that each label conveys information. By recognizing the differences and similarities of these systems, employees will be better prepared to work safely around OSHA hazardous materials. Topics covered in these products include: Types of containers requiring labels and the information required on the label, Department of Transportation (DOT) hazardous material classifications, DOT label and placard requirements, United Nations identification numbers, The Hazardous Materials Identification System (HMIS), The National Fire Prevention Association (NFPA) labeling system, Hazardous waste labeling and more.

OSHA's Position On Hazardous Materials Labels Training

The labeling of hazardous materials has been updated to incorporate a global initiative for standardization. Hazardous chemical exposure is considered, by many authorities, to be one of the most significant dangers that face U.S. workers, today. Fortunately, workplaces are becoming safer with the use of the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) of classification and labeling of chemicals. OSHA’s position on this initiative reflects their desire to see all relevant workplaces ensure that employees are trained in the recognition of these new labeling standards. Employee safety and compliance are precisely the reasons why we are offering these complete training videos and tools. OSHA’s mandatory regulations for hazard communication (OSHA 1910.1200(a)(1)) make it necessary for employers to make sure that the proper training is provided. In addition, our high quality training materials will allow employers to meet this new labeling process without having to completely revise their entire HAZCOM programs. The topics that are covered in these videos include:

  • The revised Safety Data Sheets (SDS)
  • Recognizing label pictograms
  • Hazardous materials classifications (OSHA 1910.1200(a)(1))
  • The role of employers with respect to HAZCOM training (OSHA 1910.1200(b)(3)(iii))
  • Additional labeling topics

Additional materials that we have available include; posters, booklets, training guides and other helpful aids that will assist you with OSHA HAZCOM compliance and keeping your employees safe. This economical solution to the changes in hazardous materials labeling is something that can be appreciated by any business that works with these types of materials.
