Item#: OSHA10-11

SME: Dan Johnson, CSP (SFI Compliance Inc.)

There are already more than 650,000 hazardous chemical products in circulation around any number of workplaces in the U.S., and hundreds more are introduced every year. More than 30 million workers may be exposed to a chemical hazard or to multiple chemical hazards. If you haven't yet been poisoned, remember: There's still time! Make sure it doesn't happen to you by familiarizing yourself with the HCS - OSHA's Hazard Communication Standard, which is discussed in this module.

Also covered in this module is ear-drum-damaging occupational noise, and what OSHA requires employers and employees to do to monitor the levels and minimize exposure. We'll also look at precautions for dealing with one especially dangerous toxic substance that is widely found in the construction industry: Silica.
