This Video On Demand provides an overview of an automotive workplace Hazard Communication Plan, including Safety Data Sheets, container labels and the facility’s hazard communication program. Employees learn what information Safety Data Sheets provide under the Globally Harmonized System of classification and labeling of chemicals, and how to understand the GHS labeling system for containers. Properties of chemicals that are toxins, corrosives or irritants are discussed. The difference between flammables, combustible and gases is explained. A special section explains the use of personal protective equipment to minimize hazard exposure, and identifying what types of PPE to use.
