RE: Chemical handling and hazards training videos

A good industry resource for such information is the Chemical Educational
Foundation (CEF).  The CEF was founded in 1992 as under the leadership of
the National Association of Chemical Distributors (NACD) to establish a
chemical product stewardship network to expand and extend the chemical
distribution industry's product stewardship outreach efforts to customers,
the public, emergency responders, and local communities. In 1998, the
Foundation's name changed to the Chemical Educational Foundation® and now
includes chemical manufacturers as well as distributors.   I forwarded
Tammy's question to Rochelle Ochs, CEF's Manager of Education & Training
Programs and got the following response:

CEF has three programs that may be helpful.  I have pasted the
information on these programs below.  To order, Tammy can call the
Foundation directly or order through the Web site.  She may also want to
peruse our online Industry Resource Guide (www.chemed.org/resources) for
training materials from a number of organizations.  These resources are
broken down by subject (ie. Handling Specific Chemicals, General Health and
Safety, HazMat Transportation Regulations, etc.)

If she doesn't find some programs that will work there, another option
is Business and Legal Reports (800/7-ASK-BLR).  They have a number of
training materials available, but since they are a for-profit entity, their
training programs are much more expensive.

Hope this helps.
