The SDS and HAZCOM Awareness course from OSHA Education School is a 60-minute introductory level online training designed for Manufacturing employees to learn the fundamentals of OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard (HCS).
Manufacturing processes sometimes require chemicals for production, cooling, lubrication, and cleaning. Because of this, it is important to know how to work safely around chemicals in a Manufacturing environment. The basis of this is proper classification, labeling, and documentation in Safety Data Sheets (SDS). Participants can also expect to cover the requirements of a Hazard Communication (HAZCOM) program.
OSHA Education School’s SDS and HAZCOM Awareness course is designed to teach Manufacturing employees how to recognize hazards and understand the training requirements for safe work practices around chemicals. Specific course topics include the following:
A summary of typical manufacturing environments
An overview of OSHA’s HCS and general requirements
