Per OSHA’s Laboratory Standard (29 CFR 1910.1450) and the Hazard Communication standard (29 CFR 1910.1200), employees working in a laboratory must be made aware of the potential and real hazards they may be exposed to while at work. The EPA’s Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) regulates the management of hazardous waste and requires employees to be trained. This course was designed to meet the federal training requirements, however state or local agencies may enforce additional standards.
Please Note: Specific procedures to be followed at your facility must be reviewed and/or discussed to supplement this training.
All employees working in a laboratory that have the potential for occupational exposures to physical, chemical, or other hazards and/or those that manage hazardous waste require hazard communication training.
This course can be taken on any computer with web access. The course will take students approximately 1.5 to 2 hours, depending on their background and experience. Students have the ability to “pause” the lesson and continue it at a later time. After successful completion of the course the student will be prompted to print out a “certificate of completion” for their records. A copy of this certificate should also be kept in the company’s Central Safety files, to comply with the record-keeping portion of the training.
The cost of this Laboratory Standard, Chemical Safety, and Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) Awareness training is $250 per person.
