COURSE DESCRIPTION
This course is designed to provide an overview of the principles of hazard determination and risk assessment as they relate to hazard communication. An emphasis is placed on the scientific and regulatory requirements for defensible hazard determinations and risk assessments. The goal of this course is to provide participants with the basic tools necessary to determine the potential hazards of a material and the likelihood or probability that these hazards will cause adverse effects in a particular situation. This course addresses physical, health, and ecological hazards. The skills developed in this course will better allow participants to understand and/or participate in the decision-making aspects of MSDS and label development and the determination of appropriate markets and uses for products. This is considered to be an advanced course. While there are no formal prerequisites for this course, it is strongly recommended that participants have a working knowledge of MSDS and labels and that they have either taken the SCHC courses Toxicology for Hazard Communication, Industrial Hygiene and Safety for Hazard Communication, and Ecotoxicology for Hazard Communication or that they are comfortable with the principles presented in these courses. ____________
