Our Online Vinyl Chloride Awareness for General Industry and Construction course is for those who use, handle, store, package/repackage, or manufacture vinyl chloride and may face exposure.

Vinyl Chloride is a highly toxic, flammable, colorless gas with a mild sweet odor. It’s widely produced for commercial uses in the U.S. and used to make polyvinyl chloride (PVC) products. Vinyl chloride exposure can cause very serious health effects, such as birth defects, respiratory failure, liver toxicity, and rare forms of cancer.
