Material safety data sheets (MSDS), container labels and facility hazard communication programs are the foundation of a workplace right-to-know program. This Video On Demand training explains what information is contained in a MSDS or on a label and how that information helps prevent serious problems in an emergency.
Technical terms, including duration of exposure, acute and chronic effects, dose and routes of entry including absorption, inhalation and ingestion and permissible exposure limits are covered. Viewers learn of threats presented by toxins, poisons, corrosives such as acids and caustic bases, irritants, flammables and combustibles. The training also looks at carcinogens and suspected carcinogens, such as asbestos that may be in automotive parts or components, and the risk of cigarette smoke.
Fast and proper procedures in reaction to spills, splashes, inhalation and ingestion of chemicals are shown. Procedures for containing and absorbing hazardous spills, the use of proper PPE and the right tools to remediate the spill, and proper disposal of waste materials are highlighted.
Every worker is responsible for protecting himself or herself from hazardous chemicals in the workplace. Knowing where to find information about chemicals and other potentially hazardous substances, and how to use the information, is vital. Auto shops present many hazards; this video should be viewed by anyone in an automotive repair facility to facilitate safe practices and awareness when working with chemicals.
