Advanced Topics in EHS: Role of Human Data in Hazard Communication (0.5-day)

Brochure — Available September 22, 2024


The Advanced Topics in EHS series of courses were designed to expand on topics that are introduced in basic SCHC courses. The topic of human data is introduced in the SCHC course Hazard Determination and Risk Assessment.

The goal of this course is to develop a deeper understanding of human data as they relate to HazCom and Stewardship.  Emphasis is placed on an understanding of the technical skills and background necessary to analyze, interpret, and apply these data to hazard determinations and risk assessments.  Additional topics will include the regulatory requirements for capturing, analyzing, and acting upon allegations of unexpected adverse effects under TSCA 8(c), FIRFA 6(a)(2), and CPSA 15(b).

This is an advanced course.  While there are no formal 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.

Intended Audience

Hazard communication professionals looking to strengthen their hazard determination and risk assessment skills.

Course Fee:          $290.00 Members     //     $430.00 Non-members
