CHEMICAL SAFETY - An Employee's Right to Know

Sample Video

Employees that use or work around chemicals must be properly trained to make safe decisions. OSHA requires employers to provide detailed safety information about every chemical used in the workplace. An Employee’s Right to Know (DVD-16C) is the ideal way to teach your production staff how to safely work with the specific chemicals used in the electronics industry.

This new Training/Certification program discusses the HAZCOM Standard, provides a thorough explanation of how to read material safety data sheets (MSDS), how interpret the HAZMAT sign, how to deal with common chemicals used in the electronics assembly industry, explains the importance of personal protection and details chemical spill procedures. (This DVD has a menu-selectable humorous introduction to get students in a receptive frame of mind for learning.)

DVD-16C also includes English subtitles for hearing-impaired and ESL students – also Leader’s Guide, Review Questions, Assessment Testing and  Training Certification certificates for students who pass the final examination. For unlimited students at a single facility. Time: 18 Minutes.

Training Certification is an ideal way to train and verify competency in key subject areas, like ESD Control, Lead Free Soldering, Component ID, Safety, and Acceptance Standards. These multi-media based resources include everything a trainer needs to instruct, test and certify that their operators have completed a course successfully. All students with a grade of 70% or better on the final examinations qualify for IPC Training Certification. Please see the sample certificate (.pdf) which allows for user-customization of student name, instructor, and date of completion. There is no expiration / renewal date for any Training Certification program, and they may be administered by anyone in your company.

As an operator-level credential, Training Certification demonstrates mastery of the specific theory and knowledge contained in the course, as evidence of competency for ISO training requirements through an industry-developed training program. Training Certification does not qualify instructors or students to teach or interpret IPC specifications, or assure proficiency in the physical skills required to create products to the requirements of IPC specifications.

Like all IPC Video / DVD, OVT and Computer-Based (CD) training programs, Training Certification is available for unlimited students per the particular licensing structure chosen. These media-based training solutions are created in cooperation with volunteer industry experts – to ensure technical accuracy – and are free from commercial bias.
