The common use of formaldehyde combined with its dangerous properties has warranted OSHA’s creation of a specific standard for its use. This online video training course explains the OSHA Formaldehyde Standard by exploring the risks and explaining how to minimize those risks.

This video course teaches employees how to protect themselves when working with formaldehyde including wearing appropriate personal protective equipment, how to monitor their level of exposure, how to clean up in case of a spill, and first aid in case of accidental contact.

Formaldehyde is a dangerous but useful chemical used in labs. Employees who know how to work with it safely and how to properly handle exposures reduce the risk to themselves and other lab employees. Use this online training to help ensure the safety of your laboratory employees working with formaldehyde.

This course has been updated to include GHS container labels and Safety Data Sheets (SDS) for GHS compliance.
