Evaluating New Chemicals and Disconnects in Hazard Communication (PSX 2020 On Demand)

Course Description:
This session will cover the basics of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) evaluation process for new chemicals and issues that arise that generate disconnects in hazard communication. This will include a basic overview of the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Hazard Communication Standard (HCS 2012) and the process for hazard determination for new substances. The aim is to educate attendees on the two approaches and to provide insight into how to reconcile EPA views with HCS 2012. Examples and strategies to satisfy EPA while addressing OSHA compliance will be provided.
