The Metalworking Fluids class will be a 1-day, .7 Contacts hours class with a price of $265.00. The class description is shown below:
With an estimated 1.2 million workers exposed to Metalworking fluids (MWF) in this country, the potential for harm is significant and widespread. Mineral oil mists and so-called nuisance dusts (“particulates not otherwise regulated”), Metalworking fluids may also contain other substances such as emulsifiers, stabilizers, corrosion inhibitors, biocides, fragrances, and extreme pressure additives. These complex mixtures are very useful but can cause a variety of health problems such as Dermatitis, Asthma, and Hypersensitivity Pneumonitis (HP).
The main objective of this course is to learn about the hazards of metalworking fluids and steps you can take to reduce employee exposure to them. By the time this course is over, you will be able to recognize signs of unsafe fluid; identify metalworking fluid hazards; effectively use engineering controls to reduce exposure risks; and take all other necessary precautions to protect your health and safety, effectively use engineering controls to reduce exposure risks; and take all other necessary precautions to protect your health and safety.
