Pictograms That Represent Health Hazards
This program is a microlearning. A microlearning is typically 1-2 minutes in length and quickly conveys information about a specific topic or subset of a larger topic.
Hazard Communication, commonly known as HazCom, refers to the procedures and processes used to effectively communicate to employees the hazards associated with workplace chemicals. Required by OSHA's Hazard Communication Standard, your organization's Hazard Communication Program includes a written plan that outlines essential elements of the program, such as container labeling, Safety Data Sheets, a listing of all hazardous chemicals onsite and employee training.
The purpose of Hazard Communication training is to explain and reinforce the information conveyed through container labels and Safety Data Sheets so employees can apply this information in their workplace. As part of such training, this program reviews the four health hazard pictograms found on chemical labels and some of the common hazards they are used to indicate.
