Mining facilities normally have chemicals on-site that require specific labeling and documentation to inform miners about the potential chemicals hazards they may face at work. MSHA's Title 30 CFR - Part 47 Hazard Communication standard, or "HazCom," outlines chemical labeling and documentation requirements to help mine operators reduce injuries and illnesses for miners and mining contractors. This course provides important information on MSHA’s HazCom standard and how it relates to the new Globally Harmonized System (GHS) as well as requirements for MSDS and SDS documentation.
