Description

Inappropriate handling, use, and disposal of chemicals have been responsible for injuries, illnesses, and environment pollution.  In this course you will learn about how the medical industry is exposed to chemical hazards and toxic substances, the importance of establishing a communication plan, and the rolls or tasks associated with compliance.

Several countries, such as Canada, China, France, and the U.S., each take HSE (Health, safety, and the Environment) very seriously when it comes to employees. As a result, OSHA created regulations regarding the storage, availability, handling, and communication of hazards due to chemical exposures since over 40 million workers work with and are potentially exposed to one or more chemical hazards in their workday.

The disseminated information MUST be organized or created by employers for appropriate locations and personnel in a formal, well-documented plan covering inventory, product labels, safety data sheets, and protective devices. This program is intended for workplaces that do not manufacture, import or distribute hazardous chemicals.

This information MUST be available for all personnel to reference at the initial assignment and BEFORE using potentially hazardous chemicals, materials, substances, combinations, or compounds. Additionally, whenever a new chemical is introduced into their work area, training must be provided before being used.
