Environmental Health and Safety

Hazard Communication Training (WTD162)

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 (pdf).

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.

Training will be one hour and provided monthly in 011 Edwards Hall.
