1 Hazard Communication What You Need to Know

2 Session Objectives By the end of this session, participants will be able to: Describe the 6 required label elements. Identify the 9 GHS pictograms. Recognize the new SDS format. List the required actions they must take to be in compliance with the new Haz Com Standard

3 What is HCS? Hazard Communication Standard An OSHA Regulation Adopted in 1983 Over 880,000 Chemicals 5 Million Workplaces Covers 43+ Million U.S. Workers

4 What is GHS? Not a regulation.an approach An international system

5 The Problem? A variety of chemical classification and labeling systems have been developed.

6 Is it Flammable?? OSHA 1910: flash point <100 F OSHA 1926: flash point <140 F EU OSHA: flash point <131 F

7 The GHS Solution The International Mandate "A globally harmonized hazard classification and compatible labeling system, including material safety data sheets and easily understandable symbols, should be available, if feasible, by the year United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED)

8 GHS In a Nutshell International approach Consistent hazard communication Definitions Hazard Classifications

9 Benefits of Adopting the GHS?

10 OSHA s Goals Improved Hazard Communication Improved protection of workers

11 Changes to OSHA s HCS

12 OSHA Alignment with GHS Based on GHS Rev 3 (2009) Major Changes Hazard Classification Labels Safety Data Sheets (SDSs)

13 HCS Format a) Purpose b) Scope c) Definitions d) Hazard Classification e) Written Program f) Labels g) Safety Data Sheets h) Employee Training i) Trade Secrets j) Effective Dates

14 HCS Appendices Appendix A: Health Hazard Criteria Appendix B: Physical Hazard Criteria Appendix C: Label Elements Appendix D: Safety Data Sheets Appendix E: Trade Secrets Appendix F: Carcinogenicity

15 HCS Changes Online

16 a) Purpose Old All hazards are to be evaluated New! All hazards are to be classified

17 c) Definitions Lots of Changes! Some definitions removed. Some definitions revised. Some definitions added.

18 c) Definitions Definitions Removed: Physical Hazards (relocated to Appendix B) Hazard Warning Material Safety Data Sheets

19 c) Definitions Definitions Revised: Chemical Hazardous Chemical Health Hazard Label Mixture Physical Hazard

20 c) Definitions - Chemical Old Any element, chemical compound or mixture of elements and/or compounds New! Any substance or mixture of substances.

21 c) Definitions Hazardous Chemical Old Any chemical which is a physical or health hazard. New! Classified as a: physical hazard, health hazard, simple asphyxiant, combustible dust pyrophoric gas, or HNOC.

22 c) Definitions HNOC Hazard Not Otherwise Classified (HNOC) The GDC of the HazCom Standard?!?

23 c) Definitions Label Old Any written, printed or graphic material displayed on or affixed to containers of hazardous chemicals. New! An appropriate group of written, printed or graphic information affixed to, printed on, or attached to the container of a hazardous chemical.

24 c) Definitions - added Classification Hazard Category Hazard Class Hazard Statement HNOC Label Elements Product Identifier Safety Data Sheet Signal Word Substance Pictogram Precautionary Statement

25 (d) Hazard Classification The starting point! Identify the hazards. Review the data. Determine the classification.

26 Appendix A Health Hazards Acute Toxicity Skin Corrosion/Irritation Serious Eye Damage/Eye Irritation Respiratory or Skin Sensitization Germ Cell Mutagenicity Carcinogenicity Reproductive Toxicity Target Organ Single Dose Target Organ Repeat or Prolonged Exposure Aspiration Toxicity

27 Appendix B Physical Hazards Explosives Pyrophoric Liquids Flammable Gases Pyrophoric Solids Flammable Aerosols Self-Heating Chemicals Oxidizing Gases Water Reactives Gases Under Pressure Oxidizing Liquids Flammable Liquids Oxidizing Solids Flammable Solids Organic Peroxides Self-Reactives Corrosive to Metals

28 Simple Asphyxiant Displaces oxygen Can lead to unconsciousness or Death.

29 Pyrophoric Gas Spontaneously ignites at 130 F

30 Combustible Dust Not specifically defined! Guidance can be taken from: National Emphasis Program directive NFPA standards.

31 Hazard Classification NEW! The concept of severity: Most hazard classes are subdivided into hazard categories to reflect the degree of severity of the effect.

32 Skin Corrosion/Irritation Skin Corrosion Category 1 Skin Irritation Category 2 Irritation Category 3 Destruction of dermal tissue: visible necrosis in at least one animal 1A Exposure < 3 min. Observation < 1hr, 1B Exposure < 1hr. Observation < 14 days 1C Exposure < 4 hrs. Observation < 14 days Reversible adverse effects in dermal tissue Draize score: 2.3 < 4.0 or persistent inflammation Reversible adverse effects in dermal tissue Draize score: 1.5 < 2.3

33 Hazard Classifications Health Hazard Class Hazard Category Acute Toxicity Skin Corrosion/ Irritation 1A 1B 1C 2 Serious Eye Damage/ Eye Irritation Respiratory or Skin Sensitization 1 1 2A 2B Germ Cell Mutagenicity 1A 1B 2 Carcinogenicity 1A 1B 2 Reproductive Toxicity 1A 1B 2 Lactation STOT Single Exposure STOT Repeated Exposure 1 2 Aspiration 1 Simple Asphyxiants Single Category

34 Physical Hazard Class Hazard Category Explosives Unstable Explosives Div 1.1 Div 1.2 Div 1.3 Div 1.4 Div 1.5 Div 1.6 Flammable Gases 1 2 Flammable Aerosols 1 2 Oxidizing Gases 1 Gases under Pressure 1 Flammable Liquids Flammable Solids 1 2 Self-Reactive Chemicals Type A Type B Type C Type D Type E Type F Type G Pyrophoric Liquids 1 Pyrophoric Solid 1 Pyrophoric Gases Single category Self-heating Chemicals 1 2 Water Reactives Oxidizing Liquids Oxidizing Solids Organic Peroxides Type A Type B Type C Type D Type E Type F Type G Corrosive to Metals 1 Combustible Dusts Single category

35 How will Labels Change?

36 6 Items on the New Labels Product Identifier Supplier Identification Signal Word Hazard Statement(s) Pictogram(s) Precautionary Statements

37 Product Identifier

38 Supplier Identification

39 Signal Word

40 Hazard Statements

41 Pictograms

42 Precautionary Statements

43 Where does the label info come from? Appendix C

44 What about Workplace Labels? (f)(6) Workplace labeling. Each container of hazardous chemicals in the workplace is labeled, tagged or marked with either: The same info specified for shipped containers, OR

45 What about Workplace Labels? Product identifier and Words, pictures, symbols, or combination which provide general information on the hazards of the chemicals, and in conjunction with the other information immediately available to employees provides specific information about the physical and health hazards of the chemical.
