MANDATORY MIOSHA Training on Hazard Communication/GHS

MANDATORY MIOSHA training for all WSU laboratory workers and others working with hazardous chemicals must be completed by Nov. 1, 2013

A new state-mandatory Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA) training for all laboratory workers has been announced. The training will take 30 minutes or less to complete.

The OSHA/MIOSHA Hazard Communication Standard (also know as the Right-To-Know Law) is now aligned with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). This update to the Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) will provide a common and coherent approach to classifying chemicals and communicating hazard information on labels and safety data sheets. Wayne State University is required to train all individuals working in labs on the new label elements and safety data sheet (SDS) format.

To fulfill the training requirements, please complete the slide presentation at this link:

The last slide of the training includes a link to a brief quiz and registration form. This must be completed to confirm and document your training.
