The learner will: recognize the purpose, scope and elements of the hazard communication standard, identify how chemical hazards are determined, identify the purpose of a Safety Data Sheet, and its components, identify chemicals and their hazards, through campus labeling and warning practices, recognize the physical and health hazards inherent with hazardous chemicals, and recognize the information and training required by Cal/OSHA's Hazard Communication Standard.

Course duration estimate:

55 minutes

Course is required for employees who work with hazardous chemicals in an industrial (non-laboratory) setting. Refresher training is required every three (3) years within the department or by retaking this eLearning course.
