Hazcom F.A.Q.: How often does an employer need to provide Hazcom training?

In Hazard Communication, Training by Paul Martin1 Comment

Hazard Communication - Health Hazard PictogramHazard communication training only needs to be conducted one time, when employees are assigned to work with a hazardous chemical.

Additional training is to be done whenever a new physical or health hazard is introduced into the work area, not a new chemical.

For example, if a new solvent is brought into the workplace, and it has hazards similar to existing chemicals for which training has already been conducted, then no new training is required.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) estimates that 5 million workplaces are subject to this new Hazcom regulation, which went into effect on December 1, 2013.
