Industrial Hygienist
Industrial Hygiene is primarily concerned with the control of occupational health hazards that arise as a result of or during work. Industrial Hygiene has been defined as that science and art devoted to the anticipation, recognition, evaluation, and control of those environmental factors or stresses arising in or from the workplace, which may cause sickness, impaired health and well-being, or significant discomfort among workers or among citizens of the community. At Fermilab members of the Industrial Hygiene Subcommittee will utilize the AREC process to ensure that employees are not overexposed to physical, chemical or biological agents during the course of their work.

Hazard Communication Update Training Announcement

This message is from the Environment, Safety, Health and Quality (ESH&Q) Section for all active Fermilab employees, users and visitors.

In the next week you will be contacted via the TRAIN system to complete a new online training course titled GHS Hazard Communication Update (FN000496). This course will address the training requirements of the revised Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Hazard Communication Standard which aligned itself with the United Nations Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). The purpose of this system is to standardize the classification, labels, and Safety Data Sheets (SDS) of hazardous chemicals worldwide. The benefits of this system include improved protection of employer/employee health and work environments, promotion of sound chemical management, facilitation of trade, and reduction of cost and time needed to comply with multiple classification systems.

Learn more about GHS by viewing the Energy Facility Contractors Group (EFCOG) 5-minute video located under Must See IH Video on the Industrial Hygiene webpage.

Questions on the revised OSHA standard and its affect on Fermilab's Hazard Communication Program should be directed to your Division/Section/Center Industrial Hygiene Representative.
