California Proposition 65 Labeling Workshop

PDF Brochure — available July 31 and August 2, 2018
1:00 - 3:00 p.m. (ET) as Distance Training

Workshop Description

The goal of this workshop is to provide an understanding of the labeling obligations under California’s Proposition 65 and the risk-based requirements for determining whether a warning is required.  Key topics will be covered in informal lectures and there will be opportunity to discuss the relevant hazard communication aspects of the regulation and to work on examples of risk-based labeling decisions.

This is considered an advanced course. While there are no prerequisites for this course, it is recommended that participants have a working knowledge of SDS and labels and that they have either taken the SCHC courses Toxicology for Hazard Communication and Hazard Determination and Risk Assessments or that they are comfortable with the basic principles of toxicology and risk assessment.

This is an on-line, live lecture, distance learning presentation of an in-person workshop that has been presented at SCHC meetings.  This workshop counts towards SCHC professional development recognition and may qualify for continuing education requirements.

Intended Audience

Hazard communication professionals looking to improve their California Proposition 65 labeling skills.
