Mandatory OSHA Hazard Communication Training Required at JLab by Dec. 1

OSHA has revised its Hazardous Communication Standard and thus is requiring all employees be trained on a new chemical label format and Safety Data Sheets (previously called Materials Safety Data Sheets) by Dec. 1, 2013. At Jefferson Lab this means all staff, students and users are required to complete this training.

The new chemical labels and safety data sheets will improve consistency of hazard information in the workplace as well as provide information on appropriate handling and safe use of hazardous chemicals.

The course is available at: http://www.jlab.org/div_dept/train/webbasedtraining.html
