Hazard Communication Training (WTD162)
In 2012 the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) changed a long standing regulation concerning chemicals in the work place.
This past year the Campus Environmental Health & Safety Committee approved a new hazard communication program that includes changes made in 2012 by OSHA.
To improve compliance with the new regulation, the department of Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S) is offering training in the new regulation. Training for the Globally Harmonized System of Chemical Classification and Labeling (GHS) must be provided to all employees who work with chemicals. This training must be completed by December 1, 2013.
Training will be a one hour session provided weekly in 011 Edwards Hall.
If you have questions about the program or its content, please contact Environmental Health and Safety at 785-532-5856 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
