Who Should Take This Course?

Our Methylene Chloride Awareness Online course provides general awareness of the risks of methylene chloride exposure, as well as information on the regulatory requirements to protect employees from workplace exposure.

Methylene chloride is used in various industries and many industrial processes. OSHA considers methylene chloride a potential carcinogen. Exposure can cause health effects such as confusion, headache, nausea, vomiting and respiratory tract irritation.

In addition to this awareness training, employers should provide training on workplace-specific equipment and safety procedures used to protect employees from methylene chloride exposure.
