NSC’s “Flammables and Explosives in the Laboratory” Interactive CD-ROM Course discusses the nature of flammable and explosive materials, as well as hazards associated with their use. It also reviews the proper handling procedures and personal protective equipment that should be used when working with these substances. Flammables and explosives are some of the most dangerous materials used in a laboratory. When working with these substances, employees need to know their characteristics, as well as how to prevent accidents and injuries when using them. Areas covered in the course include definitions of flammables and explosives, conditions that can create hazards, the role of ventilation in preventing problems, transporting flammables and explosives, storage considerations, using compressed gases, emergency planning, disposal, 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.
