Who Should Complete This Course?

The Hazard Communication Program covers all UAB Employees (including Faculty, Staff, and Other Employees) on campus. The Chemical Hygiene Plan includes anyone working in a laboratory. The Hazard Communication Plan applies to any hazardous material, which is known to be present in the workplace in such a manner that employees may be exposed under normal conditions or of use in a foreseeable emergency. This Plan is also applicable to employees involved in work operations where employees only handle chemicals in sealed containers, which are not opened under normal conditions. Regulatory Agencies require this training as a part of your Right-To-Understand.
