Hazard Communication

  • Classroom

Learn to identify the hazardous substances to which employees may be exposed in the workplace. The Agency written Hazard Communication Program is reviewed, which includes employee rights, labels, and other forms of warning, material safety data sheets, routes of entry, personal protective equipment (PPE), chemical first aid, and storage of hazardous materials. Workplace hazards and types of personal protective equipment required by Cal-OSHA will be reviewed, along with the limitations, proper use, care, storage, and sanitation of the equipment. Head, eye and face, hand, body, and foot protection will also be covered.

If you are a person with a disability and need an accommodation to participate, please contact the California JPIA training division by email, training@cjpia.org, within two business days of the training date, noting that the Authority is closed on Fridays.
