A wide range of physical hazards like flammability, corrosion, and explosibility as well as health hazards like irritation, sensitization, and carcinogenicity are posed by chemical hazards and toxic substances.
Specific OSHA standards for general industry, maritime, and construction address chemical hazards and toxic substances. The Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) developed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is intended to ensure that workers are provided with information regarding chemical and toxic substance hazards in the workplace, as well as associated preventive measures.
The goal of this course is to train employers and employees in the classification of hazards associated with all imported or produced chemicals as well as efficient transmission of that classification’s information to all workers on the jobsite to prevent mishaps.
training requirements of 29 CFR 1910.120(e)(3)(i) defined by Federal OSHA HAZWOPER for general industry.
training requirements of 29 CFR 1926.65(e)(3)(i) defined by Federal OSHA HAZWOPER for construction sector.
