Labeling for Consumer Products

Brochure — Next Course Offering: Spring 2018 - Monday, April 23, 2018

Course Description and Objectives

The goal of this course is to provide a detailed understanding of U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) labeling requirements. Emphasis will be placed on relevant Federal Hazardous Substances Act (FHSA) regulations that pertain to the risk-based labeling of consumer labels. The course will also provide time for working through selected examples of FHSA-compliant labeling and for participant discussion of consumer labeling issues. This course has been updated to address the co-existence FHSA-compliant labels with the new OSHA HazCom 2012 labels.
This is considered to be an advanced course. While there are no formal prerequisites for this course, it is strongly recommended that participants have a working knowledge of MSDS and labels and that they have either taken the SCHC courses, Toxicology for Hazard Communication and Health Hazard Determination and Risk Assessment, or that they are comfortable with the basic principles of toxicology, hazard determination, and risk assessment.

Intended Audience

Hazard communication professionals looking to improve their consumer product labeling skills.
