No matter which industry you work in, you may be required to work near or directly with hazardous chemicals. As a result, it’s important to correctly read Safety Data Sheets (SDS), which contain information about the ingredients, physical characteristics, exposure limits, and health hazards of chemical products. By taking How to Read an SDS for All Industries, course participants will receive Safety Data Sheet training that adheres to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) and the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals’ (GHS) standards.
