NATA Safety 1st Updates Training to Meet December OSHA Deadline

Alexandria, VA, August 22, 2013 – The National Air Transportation Association (NATA) is pleased to announce the availability of its recently revised online NATA Safety 1st Hazardous Communications (HazCom) training program.

In 2012, the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) finalized rule changes aligning its HazCom Standard with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). OSHA has required that employers train their employees on the new label elements and safety data sheet format contained within the rule by December 1, 2013. Employers can now utilize the revised NATA Safety 1st HazCom module to meet this critical deadline for training employees.

The training includes downloadable and printable student resources as well as a printable certificate of completion to aid in record-keeping.
