Hazardous chemicals can have severe physical and health hazards in a clinical, industrial, or academic laboratory setting. UAB’s Chemical Safety Training (OHS_CS101) is based on the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) Laboratory Standard. The goal of the Laboratory Standard is to educate employees about the potentially hazardous chemicals in their area and how to minimize exposure.

This course will provide information on how to identify risks associated with hazardous chemicals, minimizing exposure, labeling, and inventory requirements, and the correct procedures to respond to emergencies. Persons handling harmful chemicals during their work at UAB must complete this course. Regulatory agencies mandate completing this course every two years or if there are significant changes in regulations.
