Mandatory Hazard Communication/Right to Know Law Training
All SUNY Brockport employees are required to complete annual Hazard Communication/Right to Know Law training. This training is administered through a BizLibrary video series titled, “HazCom, the GHS, and You.”
Employees should have already received an email from BizLibrary (firstname.lastname@example.org) regarding this mandatory training, including the link to access the training, and you have 60 days to complete the training modules.
SUNY Brockport has developed and implemented a Hazard Communication Plan in accordance with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s Hazard Communication Standard and the NYS Department of Labor Toxic Substances Information, Training and Education (“Right-to-Know Law”) and Article 28 of the New York State Labor Law, Toxic Substances. This plan outlines employee rights relative to working with hazardous chemicals; assigns responsibility for maintaining compliance with regulatory requirements; describes chemical inventory and labeling procedures; describes how and where Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) are maintained; details the training program; and addresses non-routine task and contactor issues. A copy of the Hazard Communication Plan can be obtained by contacting the Office of Environmental Health and Safety (ext. 2495).
Due to the nature of some academic programs and maintenance operations, hazardous chemicals are utilized at the college. Faculty and staff working with hazardous chemicals as part of their job duties receive appropriate safety training.
SDS sheets for hazardous chemicals are available on the Office of Environmental Health and Safety webpage.
