This entry level course will review basic concepts necessary to understand chemical hazards. Participants will be given a NIOSH Pocket Guide to Chemical Hazards. Each term or concepts in the Pocket Guide will be explained. Using their Pocket Guide, participants will be able to find chemical information and evaluate health and safety hazards based on chemical and physical properties. This course is designed for people with questions like these: What is a CAS number? What is RTECS? Where is RTECS data available? How does vapor pressure correlate to fire or health hazards? How does the Flash Point, Lower Explosive Limit, and Upper Explosive Limit correlate to fire hazards? How do different exposure limits – RELs, PELs, and TLVs – compare? What are concentration terms like mg/m3 and ppm, and how do they compare? We will conclude with a brief introduction to other sources of chemical information on the web.
This class is fully booked.
NOTE: We do not have the manpower to make changes to your schedule or to track “wait lists” this year.
