This is a one-time required training for employees who use hazardous chemicals.  This training is intended for non-laboratory personnel. This program applies to all non-laboratory work areas that utilize hazardous chemicals including, but not limited to, machine shops, maintenance shops, garage areas and janitorial/custodial storage areas.  Topics covered include labeling systems, Safety Data Sheets, chemical hazards, and safe work practices. 

This is considered Part 1 of HazCom training.  Part 2 (work group specific HazCom training) will be provided by your supervisor.


  • Chemical use in laboratories is covered by the PSU Laboratory & Research Safety Plan. Work areas/labs currently operating under the PSU Laboratory & Research Safety Plan are exempt from the requirements of this program.
