The Society for Protective Coatings was founded in 1950 as the Steel Structures Painting Council, a non-profit professional society concerned with the use of coatings to protect industrial steel structures.

In 1997, the name of the association was changed to The Society for Protective Coatings to better reflect the changing nature of coatings technology and the ever-expanding types of construction materials.

SSPC is the only non-profit association that is focused on the protection and preservation of concrete, steel and other industrial and marine structures and surfaces through the use of high-performance protective, marine and industrial coatings. SSPC is the leading source of information on surface preparation, coating selection, coating application, environmental regulations, and health and safety issues that affect the protective coatings industry.

The OSHA Hazard Communication Standard: 1910.1200 was updated on May 25, 2012 to align with the UN Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals. This update provides a uniform global approach to classifying chemicals and communicating hazardous information provided on container labels and material safety data sheets. This webinar will explain the importance of the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard: 1910.1200, how it differs from the past version, how to conform to the current version, and how the current standard improves quality and consistency of hazard information in the workplace, making it safer for workers and helping reduce trade barriers, resulting in productivity improvements for American businesses that regularly handle, store, and use hazardous chemicals.
