Wednesday January 10 2018 - WEBINAR: Steps for Transitioning to Safer Chemicals- the OSHA Toolkit and Training
1:00 pm - Pacific Standard Time
While many chemicals used in commerce are suspected of being harmful, only a small number are regulated. Establishing a chemical management system that goes beyond complying with regulations and strives to reduce or eliminate chemical hazards at the source through informed substitution best protects workers, the consumer and the environment. Transitioning to safer alternatives can be a complex undertaking, but a variety of existing resources make it easier. OSHA has developed this step-by-step toolkit to provide employers and workers with information, methods, tools, and guidance on using informed substitution in the workplace. In this webinar, you will learn why the toolkit was developed, walk through a few tools, receive an overview of the OSHA 7225 course that was developed for individuals to learn about this resource and hear how it helped an attendee with their safer chemicals initiative.
