CHEMICAL SAFETY OVERVIEW
Where hazardous chemicals are used, a single exposure can be life-threatening. Chemicals, especially inorganic compounds, are often unpredictable, unstable, and dangerous when handled unsafely. If you work with industrial chemicals each day, then you work in a high-risk environment.
Upon successful completion of this course, you should be able to:
A) Explain what a chemical is and that use of any chemical constitutes potential for an exposure risk
B) Explain your responsibility as a worker to prevent exposure incidents
C) Recognize hazardous chemicals as classified by the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) and sort them into their respective categories
D) List conditions that may present an exposure risk, possible routes of exposure, and factors that influence an individualís reaction to a chemical exposure incident
E) Identify who is responsible for evaluating chemical hazards and how the result of the evaluation is communicated to the end user
F) Demonstrate safe transport, storage, and disposal practices for hazardous chemicals
G) Describe the procedures for detecting and reacting to potential chemical exposure
H) Identify how to prepare for a chemical related accident
I) Describe the actions to be taken should a chemical related accident occur
