The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires all OSU employees who use chemicals (inc. faculty, staff, post-docs and grad students) to complete a training exercise concerning recent changes to world wide hazard communication standards, specifically, the Global Harmonization System (GHS) and Safety Data Sheets (SDS; a new version of MSDS). A due date of Dec. 1 (2013) has been set for this training.
The training requirement can be satisfied by viewing a movie (ca. 20 min) and then completing a short on-line quiz; both are available at the following link. An ONID log-in is required to access the materials and will serve to track who has completed the training.
More information can be found below in the release from EH&S.
Apologies for the short notice, we only today became aware of this training requirement and the impending deadline. Please do what you can to get to the quiz by Dec. 1.
