NSC’s “Using Material Safety Data Sheets in the Laboratory” Interactive CD-ROM Course reviews the various sections of the MSDS, what information can be found in each section and most importantly, how this information can help employees to work safely. All potentially hazardous materials entering a laboratory have a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS). But to make good use of the information on an MSDS, employees need to understand how it is organized and what it contains. Areas covered in the course include the purpose of Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs), sections of the MSDS, information found in each section, how MSDS information can help employees work safely, 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.
