About 32 million workers are potentially exposed to one or more chemical hazards on a daily basis. There are an estimated 575,000 existing chemical products, and hundreds of new ones being introduced annually. This poses a serious problem for exposed workers and their employer. The OSHA Hazard Communication Standard (29CFR1910.1200) establishes uniform requirements to make sure that the hazards of all chemicals imported into, produced, or used in U.S. workplaces are evaluated, and that this hazard information is transmitted to all affected workers.
The following course outline is designed to make employees aware of the hazards in their workplace and the resources available to help educate the employee on controlling these hazards.
NOTE: CSEM, Inc. may be contacted in the future to schedule a workplace evaluation in an effort to help maintain compliance with this regulation
