Hazard Communication Program 
The purpose of Hazard Communication training is to describe the hazardous characteristics and effects of chemicals and identify sources for chemical hazard information. Training includes a review of how chemical container labels and safety data sheets (SDS) present and format chemical hazard information since the updates mandated by OSHA for the Hazard Communication Standard in 2012.
