UL Launches OSHA Authorized General Industry Outreach Training

Nov 19, 2019

Princeton, NJ - (PRNewswire)

UL, a leading global safety science company, in collaboration with Environmental Health & Safety Association for High Technology (SESHA), is releasing a first of its kind General Industry 10-hour outreach training course, designed for the semiconductor and high-tech industries. The course provides businesses with critical guidance to understand pertinent risks, establish strong institutional knowledge, and optimize processes to build and maintain safer, healthier workplaces.

Workers in these industries face unique workplace hazards, including the potential for exposure to pyrophoric, flammable, toxic and corrosive gases and liquids. Employee education and safety training to work with specialized chemicals, such as silane, arsine and Tetramethylammonium hydroxide (TMAH), is uncommon and expensive to develop. This presents a significant occupational health and safety management challenge for businesses.

“In these specialized industries, tools, equipment, processes and energy control precautions can be particularly complex,” said Scott Barnard, managing director of UL PURE™ Learning. “We leveraged our online training course development leadership while working with SESHA content matter experts to develop targeted employee learning to address these higher-risk workplace hazards. The training we offer helps businesses to demonstrate their commitment to worker safety while building workplace excellence to manage overall enterprise risk.”

Workers in the geographic jurisdiction of the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Act who successfully complete the program will receive a completion card issued by the U.S. Department of Labor.
