Who Should Take This Course?
Our Acrylonitrile Awareness Online course is intended for those who work with or around acrylonitrile in the workplace. The course provides general awareness of the risks of exposure, as well as information on the employer requirements to protect employees, as required by OSHA.
Acrylonitrile is also known as “vinyl cyanide”, and is a flammable, explosive, colorless liquid with a sharp onion-like odor. It’s used to make chemicals such as plastics, acrylic fibers, and synthetic rubber.
Acrylonitrile is considered by OSHA to be a probable human carcinogen. Exposure can also cause harm to the eyes, skin, lungs, and nervous system and at high concentrations, it can lead to loss of consciousness and death.
