This awareness course will introduce learners to everything from the content of a hazardous chemical information program to the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) to how to use Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) and chemical labels to prepare for hazards or react to exposures.
Labels keep us informed all the time. Labels inform our diet decisions, ensure we take the right medicines in the right amounts, and keep us safe at heights and in tight spaces. In the workplace, labels communicate hazards, precautions and exposure treatment for hazardous substances.
This course explains SDSs to managers and front line workers in industries and environments that require the use of hazardous substances.
