Hazardous materials are used in numbers of ways in the healthcare industry. OSHA’s Hazard Communication (“HAZCOM”) Standard gives employees the “right-to-know” about any potentially hazardous materials that can be encountered in their workplace, and how to handle them safely.
MARCOM’s updated “Hazard Communication in Healthcare Environments” courses discuss the requirements of the HAZCOM Standard, the hazards that can be associated with different types of HAZMATs, and what employees can do to avoid these hazards.
