In a typical workplace, a worker may be confronted with posted hazard warnings, signs, tags, incoming labels, workplace labels, safety data sheets (SDS), manuals explaining the company hazard communication program, lists of chemicals, and information furnished by the union. This wide variety of communications will differ in format, content and reading level. These differences can obscure the important hazard communication message. Training can reduce this background “noise” by presenting the necessary information in a structured and logical manner. This training covers hazardous chemical handling and storage, general requirements, chemical labels, chemical hazard categories and hazards, safety data sheets (SDS), chemical spills, and exposure incident reporting.
