Forklift Operation 3: Load Handling
Forklifts are an important tool used in many industries, but they present many hazards to their operators. The good news is that many of these hazards can be avoided, if not eliminated, when operators are trained to properly operate and load a forklift.

More specific practices for approaching, lifting, and lowering a load can also help forklift operators improve load handing safety as they perform each of these actions. Armed with this knowledge, forklift operators will be better prepared to safely load the forklifts they operate. Forklift Operation 3: Load Handling was developed with subject matter support provided by EnSafe Inc., a global professional services company focusing on engineering, environment, health and safety, and information technology.

Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS)
GHS, an acronym for Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals, is a system aiming to standardize and harmonize the classification and labeling of chemicals. Although many countries follow regulatory systems for the safe handling and transport of chemicals through labels and safety data sheets, there is no standard approach. So while the formats are similar in different countries, the differences are significant enough to warrant different labeling and safety data sheets for the same product in different markets. With the gradual implementation of the GHS worldwide, countries have consistent and appropriate information on the chemicals they import or produce, and the infrastructure to control chemical exposures and protect people and the environment can be established in a comprehensive manner. This course introduces the GHS and explains how hazards are classified and communicated through the use of labels and safety data sheets.

Hexavalent Chromium
Hexavalent chromium, also known as chromium (VI) and hex chrom, is the toxic form of the metal chromium. It has many industry sources, including chromate pigments in paints and dyes; chromates used as anticorrosive agents in primers and surface coatings; chromic acid electroplated on to metal parts; and particle byproducts that result from welding and smelting specific metals. There are serious potential health effects as a result of exposure to hexavalent chromium in the workplace. Employees are at risk for cancer, respiratory problems, contact dermatitis, and eye infections. These risks led OSHA to introduce a standard (29 CFR 1910.1026) to regulate occupational exposures to hexavalent chromium and it imposes strict exposure limits in the workplace. This course outlines the sources of hexavalent chromium, the potential health effects of exposure to hexavalent chromium that's above the permissible levels, and how OSHA regulates chromium in the workplace by regular monitoring and medical surveillance.

Injury and Illness Prevention Program
In the years since the introduction of the OSH Act, employers in the United States have seen a significant drop in the number of workplace injuries and deaths. However, the number of employee injuries and deaths remains unacceptable. In an effort to further encourage prevention and bring these numbers down, OSHA is presently developing a new rule that requires employers to actively manage employee safety by implementing an injury and illness prevention program. This rule forms part of OSHA's long-term regulatory agenda and, while no date has been set for it to be passed into law, implementing an injury and illness prevention program will help your organization prevent workplace injuries, illnesses, and fatalities, thereby protecting your employees and reducing the costs of responding to these incidences.

Introduction to Industrial Hygiene
All employees should expect to work in as safe an environment as possible, whether they work in an office building, a factory, or a nuclear power plant. Since ancient times, medical professionals, social activists, and philosophers have observed and written about the various dangers associated with the work people do. In modern times, governments and industry professionals have stepped up and taken responsibility for creating legislation that protects workers from various types of hazards. The field of study that has emerged out of the need to create safe and healthy work environments is called industrial hygiene. All employees should be aware of the hazards they face, as well as steps they can take to minimize the risk of injury and disease. All supervisors should be aware of the regulations they must follow to ensure workers' exposure to dangerous chemicals and hazards is below legal limits. It is the role of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to educate both workers and their supervisors in the limits OSHA has set for exposure to various workplace hazards. This course gives a general introduction to the work of the industrial hygienists. It also explains the types of hazards that workers may face, the health effects of such hazards, and measures that are taken to limit exposure. The course was developed and reviewed with subject matter support provided by certified subject matter experts and industry professionals. Please note, the course materials and content were current with the laws and regulations at the time of the last expert review, however, they may not reflect the most current legal developments.
