In order to protect ourselves from hazardous chemicals we have to understand them. The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) requires it for employees who are exposed to chemicals at work. You need to understand how hazardous materials behave alone or when combined, how to read required labels and to find additional information about chemical safety, all for your protection. The Video On Demand Introduction to Hazardous Chemicals covers all of the bases.
It is essential for chemicals to be labeled and for you to understand the rules for labels created by OSHA, the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Learn more about labels and requirements from the video Hazardous Materials Labels.

Inorganic oxidizers can be so lethal that they get their own video training, HazChem Inorganic Oxidizers. Inorganic oxidizers are so unique because they usually do not burn; instead they release gases, explode, increase burning and can ignite suddenly. Learn all about commonly used inorganic oxidizers, how to be around them safely and how to protect yourself in the event of a hazardous chemical emergency.
