Hazard Communication Training (WTD162)

The KSU Hazard Communication Program provides employees with the necessary information to protect their health and well-being from chemical hazards.  The campus-wide program was developed in accordance to the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) regulations found in 29 CFR 1910.1200 and has been updated to include the Globally Harmonized System of Chemical Classification and Labeling (GHS) that OSHA added in 2012.

 Hazard Communication (HazCom) training is required for all employees who may be "exposed" to hazardous chemicals when working.  "Exposure" or "exposed" under the HazCom standard means that an employee is subjected to a hazardous chemical in the course of employment through any route of entry (inhalation, ingestion, skin contact, or absorption) and includes potential (e.g., accidental or possible) exposure.  For more information, see the KSU Hazard Communication Program.

 The Department of Environmental Health & Safety offers HazCom training monthly.  Employees that completed HazCom training prior to September 2013 will need to attend a current course that includes GHS. 

 If you have questions about the program or its content, please contact Environmental Health and Safety at 785-532-5856 or email safety@ksu.edu.

 For additional information, see the article in the September 23, 2013 edition of K-State Today.
