Course Content Example 1:
Hazards of all chemicals produced in the United States or imported to the United States are classified.
The OSHA Standard on toxic and hazardous substances mandates that classification of potential hazards of chemicals, information concerning these hazards, and appropriate protective measures be communicated to all employers and employees.
The JC Standards state that the organization "maintains a written, current inventory of hazardous materials and waste that it uses, stores, or generates." The intent of this written communication is to ensure that employers and employees in health care environments understand the hazards associated with chemicals.
This course will review the current OSHA and JC standards regarding hazard communication in the health care facility.
