This GHS HAZCOM course from Broadway Oilfield Training Midland is delivered via CBT based on standards consistent with OSHA 1910.1200.
All workers who may work around chemicals should be receiving GHS HAZCOM training as soon as they begin working in their fields. HAZCOM is known as the right to know. Each worker will be trained on how to find information about chemicals in their workplace. The HAZCOM training also includes training on how to recognize the standard pictograms as well as how to read an SDS.
What used to be MSDS in the United States is now SDS, or Safety Data Sheets. The M, or Material, was dropped for GHS reasons in order to standardize the nomenclature across the international HAZCOM standard.
The Permian Basin of West Texas and New Mexico is known to use several oil and gas chemicals during drilling, completions, production, and oil and gas processing. All oilfield hands need to easily identify which chemicals are hazardous and understand the information as laid out in the UN Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). GHS HAZCOM training ensures that all workers understand their responsibilities under OSHA 1910.1200 as well as their right to know about chemicals on location based on oil industry standard procedures.

Dealing with potentially harmful substances is part of the job for a large number of workers in a wide variety of fields. More than 850 potentially hazardous compounds are included in the Occupational Chemical Database maintained by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). This database is utilized to protect workers in businesses throughout the United States. If employees do not take the proper precautions, several of these dangerous compounds have the potential to cause serious harm or even death.
Exposure to chemicals may result in a wide range of diseases and injuries, including skin burns and rashes, as well as harm to the nervous system, medical complications, and even cancer. Having an efficient HAZCOM strategy in the workspace and providing training to the employees on how to use the plan may, on the other hand, contribute to the safety and well-being of your employees. This is true regardless of the business sector in which you operate or the particular worksite you occupy.
A hazard communication plan, also known as a HAZCOM plan, is something that needs to be implemented at the place of business to ensure the safety of employees and ensure that they are aware of the potential dangers that they face from being exposed to chemicals. Workers need to know mandatory and important safety steps if there is a spill or accident in their area of work.
Any company is required by OSHA to have a HAZCOM strategy that addresses the chemical risks that exist at workplace to assist and protect the employees. Workers are provided with the information, training, and necessary tools to operate securely around the chemicals that are present in their workplaces as a result of HAZCOM strategies. The following components are required to be a part of the HAZCOM strategy for your facility:
- Everything needs to be known about the chemicals that are utilized at the place of employment and how to be safe around them.
- The labeling and cautionary information for each chemical need to be updated.
- Specific educational prerequisites for every substance are mandatory.
- The location where the safety data sheets (SDS) for each chemical are present and examined.
Globally Harmonized System (GHS):
For the majority of chemicals that are used in American workplaces, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) adheres to the guidelines for chemical labeling that have been established by the Globally Harmonized System (GHS). When it comes to putting up their HAZCOM plans, almost all chemical producers, importers, distributors, and employers in the United States follow the GHS. The Globally Harmonized System is the most prevalent hazard information and labeling system. Labels created by the NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) are often seen affixed to buildings or storage facilities that house hazardous compounds. These labels are mainly used by firemen and other responders to immediately detect chemical risks that might make an emergency more dangerous. The numerical danger rating used by the NFPA is in direct contrast to what is utilized by the GHS.
