NSC’s “The ANSI Material Safety Data Sheet” Interactive CD-ROM Course has been specifically created to educate employees about the ANSI MSDS format. The American National Standards Institute (ANSI), working with the Chemical Manufacturer’s Association (CMA), has developed the first standard format for Material Safety Data Sheets. While this new MSDS format is not required under the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard, OSHA is encouraging its use. Perhaps as important, most of the large chemical manufacturer’s in the United States appear to be adopting this MSDS format. Areas covered in the course include the MSDS in working with hazardous chemicals, the MSDS’s role in the Hazard Communication Standard, the advantages of the ANSI format, the four basic questions the ANSI MSDS is designed to answer, review of the sections in the ANSI MSDS format, how to use paper and computer-based MSDS resources, and more. Using a powerful combination of audio, full-motion video, text and colorful graphics, this course provides the most cost-effective safety and regulatory compliance training available today. The course is divided into a number of logical sections so information is easily understood… and retained. Also designed with the training manager in mind, all courses in the Interactive CD-ROM Training Library include a learning management system (at no additional cost). Using this system, trainers can set up “Pre” and “Post” tests… establish log-in procedures… even define and set up curriculum for various job classes. The system also collects and organizes employee performance information through a powerful relational database, which can generate a number of record-keeping and tracking reports… and has a database “import/export” feature, which allows information to be transferred to and from an external database (such as a company’s personnel database). The course is one of over 100 titles currently available in the Interactive CD-ROM Training Library.
