Event description

Description

Virginia Tech Environmental Health and Safety has received a Susan Harwood Training Grant to develop and provide training on hazardous chemicals for workers in general industry. OSHA's HazCom standard applies to many persons working in general industry and light manufacturing, including persons working where bulk chemicals are used or where household-type products are used at a frequency greater than a normal consumer. Covered employees may include maintenance personnel, production workers, or even cleaning or kitchen staff. This training is tailored to meet the needs of general industry and light manufacturing employers with 250 or fewer employees.

This Train-the-Trainer course prepares individuals to teach the two-hour Hazardous Chemicals in General Industry Awareness Course to their own audiences and employees.

Hazardous Chemicals in General Industry was produced under grant number SH-05037-SH8 from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, U.S. Department of Labor. It does not necessarily reflect the views or policies of the U.S. Department of Labor, nor does mention of trade names, commercial products, or organizations imply endorsement by the U.S. Government.
