Special to the Tribune
As part of its Safety Workshop program with SCF Arizona, the Prescott Valley Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring a training that will review the changes in the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard based on the Globally Harmonized Communication System (GHS) and help prepare employers and employees to deliver training to workers.
The GHS training is mandated to be accomplished by Dec. 1, and all employees must understand the changes in labeling, MSDS vs. SDS, and key phrases, pictograms and hazard descriptions included in the GHS.
All participants will receive a free CD full of training resources including a PowerPoint program, numerous handouts and the OSHA Standard side-by-side version with all changes to the Hazard Communication Standard.
The workshop is presented by Jenny Mandeville, a training officer for Arizona Division of Occupational Safety and Health.
In the 13 years that Jenny has been with ADOSH she has been a compliance officer, a safety consultant and now, as a training officer, she travels the state conducting training for employers and employees.
Due to importance of this information to all employers, the Prescott Valley Chamber is sponsoring the workshop for all interested businesses.
The training will be from 9 to 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 29, in the Crystal Room of the Prescott Valley Library.
Because of the popularity of this workshop, reservations are requested, however there is no charge to attend. Contact Bev at 928-772-8857 to reserve a seat.
