This course provides an overview of the HCS and its alignment with the provisions of the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals. Topics covered include the purpose and requirements of the Hazard Communication Standard, requirements and purpose of hazard warning labels, pictograms, and how to read and use Safety Data Sheets.
