Workshop Addresses Occupational Safety and Biosafety

Compliance, Integrity, and Safety will host an educational session, “Occupational Safety and Biosafety,” from noon to 1 p.m., Monday, Feb. 25. The session will be held in Memorial Union Alumni Lounge.

Last year, OSHA adopted the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) for classification and labeling of chemicals. This session will provide an overview of the new GHS format for chemical labels and chemical Safety Data Sheets (SDS). The session will also include an overview of the MSDSonline database that is being rolled out on campus for cataloging and accessing chemical SDS information.

To register for this session, see Occupational Safety and Biosafety. Registration deadline is 4 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 21. If you have questions, please contact David Dixon at 487-2131 or dcdixon@mtu.edu.
