Hazardous Communication (HAZCOM) & Resource, Conservation & Recovery Act (RCRA)

The goal of this course is to educate campus employees to recognize and understand the required elements of the campus written hazard communication program, including how to identify and evaluate chemical hazards using Safety Data Sheets and chemical labels following the new Global Harmonized System (GHS) requirements. This course covers how to identify how chemical hazards are determined, identify and read a Safety Data Sheet, and its components, identify chemicals and their hazards, thorough campus labeling and warning practices, recognize the physical and health hazards inherent with hazardous chemicals, and learn how to properly label and ship a hazardous chemical following GHS guidelines.

The HAZCOM Safety Training course is required for UL Lafayete employees who work with or may be exposed to hazardous chemicals on the job.  Fulltime faculty and staff may complete this training in the Cornerstone Learning Management System (LMS).  Parttime employees and student workers may complete this training in Moodle.  Employees on the UL Lafayette campus who handle or work with hazardous chemicals are required to take training in HAZCOM/RCRA every 3 years.
