3 durhamtech.edu Durham Technical Community College Hazard Communication Review Training Requirement Your “Right to Know” Note: if a web-link does not seem to work, click it a second time. Also, you can press these 3 keys at the same time (CTRL-ALT-TAB) to display other windows. Use the TAB key then mouse-click the small window you want. Switch back to this training the same way.

4 durhamtech.edu FOCUS & PURPOSE of Training >Focus Group: Review for Employees that have had the first-time HAZMAT training or review over 8 months ago. >Purpose: Familiarize you with Hazardous Materials, warning labels & where to get chemical information in the form of Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS). >If you are exempt from this update, you will have already received an with instructions.

5 durhamtech.edu What is a CHEMICAL? >Chemical substances may be defined as "any material with a definite chemical composition." (Wikipedia) For the purpose of this training, we include mixtures of chemicals. >Chemicals are in everything from the air you breath, the foods you consume, the clothes you wear. Water is a chemical (formula: H 2 O). >Distinct substances have properties that can determine how we use them or when they can make us sick.

6 durhamtech.edu Why Knowing The Chemicals Is Important? >All chemicals can be TOXIC – dangerous at concentrations above a certain level. Even water can make you sick or kill you if you drink too much. >(Material) Safety Data Sheets provide official safety information on chemicals. >Durham Tech has an (M)SDS for every hazardous substance you use. >They are online at

12 durhamtech.edu Hazard Communication >Safety is 1 st YOUR responsibility. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR LEARNING THE HAZARDS AND USING PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE) AND SAFE PROCEDURES IF WORKING WITH HAZARDOUS MATERIALS. >This presentation provides general safety “Right-To- Know” refresher training. >Your Supervisor or Instructor is responsible for their employee or student’s specific safety orientation. THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR INFORMING YOU OF HAZARDS AND OBSERVING YOU WORK IN A SAFE MANNER. >The DTCC Safety Officer may also be consulted with questions or concerns.Safety Officer
