Action Needed: New Cal/OSHA Training Required by December 1, 2013

Cal/OSHA has revised its Hazard Communication Standard to align with the UN global chemical communication system. OSHA is phasing in the elements of that policy and you need to take action to comply with the first element. By 12/1/13 all employers must train all those who come in contact with any chemical  in the workplace to understand how to interpret hazards communicated  through pictograms and standardized material safety data sheets, now called safety data sheets or SDS. This means that auto repair businesses have to provide that training to their employees this November. You only have to explain the materials below; you do not have to discuss any specific chemical. Document your training.
