The Hazard Communication course offers a deep dive into global safety standards for hazardous chemical handling. It begins with an introduction to the importance of hazard communication, followed by an exploration of the 16-section Safety Data Sheets (SDS) and how to interpret them.
The course covers the nine GHS pictograms, the significance of signal words, and precautionary statements. It also discusses container labeling requirements and other labeling guidelines.
An interactive simulation lets participants engage with chemical labels, interpret SDS sections, and respond to a chemical spill scenario. By the end, learners will be adept at understanding and applying hazard communication principles, ensuring safer chemical handling in the workplace.
