      Conference on the new OSHA Globally Harmonized System (GHS) of Classification and Labeling
       
      For those renewable energy manufacturers currently using undesirable chemicals (even trace amounts) in their products, this legislative development is particularly important. The thin film industry, for example, is desperately seeking alternatives to Cadmium.
       
      Best,

      CONFERENCE SNAPSHOT:

      This conference is intended to help you understand and comply with the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) newly final Hazard Communication Standard (HCS).

       

      This rule is OSHA’s most comprehensive rulemaking in a decade. 

       

      Its impact is significant and affects over five million businesses that use or store chemicals, and 90,000 chemical manufacturers, importers, and distributors.  Because the new rule is a major revision of the HCS, OSHA is requiring employers to train all employees on the new rules. Over the next year, and beyond, OSHA’s revised HCS will impose significant cost burdens

      on U.S. businesses, big and small alike, across industry sectors.

       

      HCS 2012 introduces a new set of criteria for classifying human health and physical hazards, as well as identifying OSHA-defined hazards. Companies will need to classify substances and/or products to ensure that the appropriate classifications are assigned.  In many instances, SDSs and labels will need to be revised -- perhaps significantly -- to conform to new HCS requirements. 

       

      Achieving and maintaining compliance will be a complex and time-consuming undertaking for many companies.  Industry professionals are aggressively seeking to understand and react quickly to the immediate and long-term implications of the new rule, so they can competently and strategically manage resources, budget, training, and compliance. 

       

      Our speakers are leading regulatory compliance experts and industry representatives who provide strategic advice to a broad spectrum of industry clients relative to regulatory standards, rulemaking, and compliance.

       

      This audio conference will:

       

      * Provide key insights and analysis of the OSHA HCS adopting GHS;

       

      * Discuss the multiple impacts and estimated costs to be incurred by employers and manufacturers;

       

      * Compare the revised HCS to global GHS adoption schemes and provide a regulatory overview of HCS 2012;

       

      * Define and discuss new definitions for “substance,” “mixture,” and hazard “classification,” among other critically important new terms; and

       

      * Examine strategic planning considerations and potential compliance/risk exposures for employers and manufacturers.

       

      Our speakers are leading regulatory compliance experts and industry representatives who will help front-line staff and/or responsible persons best understand how to deal with the new rule.
