SafeLink Consulting introduces its Hazard Communication (HazCom) Training Toolkit. The Toolkit allows easy, cost-effective, and timely compliance with OSHA’s revised Hazard Communication Standard. It also clarifies the new requirements, provides OSHA-required employee training, reduces the risk of certain types of OSHA visits and/or fines, and saves the time otherwise-required to research this updated standard.
OSHA’s revision is based on its March 2012 adoption of certain components of The Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). By the December 1, 2013 deadline, employers will be required to train employees to recognize and understand all new classifications, labelings, universal pictograms (symbols) and standardized safety data sheets. In addition, under future deadlines, businesses will be required to add global pictograms identifying hazardous products, and be required to use standardized Safety Data Sheets.
The HazCom Toolkit was developed by the dental industry’s top safety consultants, who, in addition to their decades of bench, office and chairside experience, are also authorized trainers under OSHA's Outreach Program, FDA Title 21 consultants and internal auditors, and approved DAMAS certification auditors in both North America and Asia.
Mary Borg, SafeLink's President, says, “People have been talking, worrying and wondering about the OSHA revisions for over a year, but the truth is nobody’s developed a concise, complete and accurate system, a step-by-step answer, to make it easy for the business owner to say ‘Off my list. On to more profitable activities.’ Luckily, we were in a great position to have done so.”

Step-by-step Employer instructions and guide on CD
