New hazard communication training program from the CPWR

CPWR hazard communication training course for construction

The CPWR (Center for Construction Training and Research) recently published a hazard communication training course for construction workers. The four-hour course includes an instructor manual, 148-slide PowerPoint show, and a 136-page participant's manual. It satisfies the general training requirements of OSHA's Hazard Communication standard, 1910.1200. After completing the course, participants will be able to:

  1. Discuss the five key elements of OSHA's Hazard Communication standard.
  2. Describe their rights under the standard.
  3. Identify the new OSHA label symbols and explain what each means.
  4. Describe the four routes of entry for chemicals and give an example of a chemical known to enter the body through each.
