Safety and Hazardous Materials

Safety procedures are posted next to the first aid kits located in offices and classrooms of the college. Accidents should be immediately reported to a college staff member or security at 253-589-5682 and an Accident/Injury Report completed. Some program areas utilize materials which are classified as hazardous chemicals. The Occupational Safety Health Act (OSHA) Communication Standard 1910.120, and the State of Washington Right to Know Statutes require that chemicals be appropriately labeled and that the college has on file a Materials Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for each of the hazardous chemical products being packaged, handled, or transferred. The MSDS provides a description of how the identified chemical is to be handled and is readily available in case of an emergency, or upon request. Questions or concerns regarding hazardous chemicals should be referred to the faculty for further information.
