The Directorate of Training and Education (DTE) has recently revised the "Introduction to OSHA" training materials for the 10- and 30-hour Outreach Training Program classes. The materials were revised to incorporate the recent changes to the Hazard Communication Standard to align with the Global Harmonization System (GHS). The revised materials include
- Introduction to OSHA Instructor Guide – Replaced references to Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) with Safety Data Sheets (SDS) including Table of Contents, Appendix A1, C1, and D1
- Introduction to OSHA Power Points – Replaced slides 13, 14, 22, and 39 to reflect Safety Data Sheets
- Safety Data Sheet (SDS) handout replaces Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS).
The revised training materials are located on the OSHA Web site at www.osha.gov/dte/outreach/teachingaids.html.
Be sure to review this new information prior to conducting training and use the updated materials in planning and presentation of the "Introduction to OSHA" mandatory topic in all Outreach Training classes.
