403.4 Hazardous Chemical Disclosure


The board authorized the development of a comprehensive hazardous chemical communication program for the school district to disseminate information about hazardous chemicals in the workplace.

Each school district employee shall review this information about hazardous substances annually.  Further, when a new school district employee is hired, the information and training, if necessary, shall be included in the orientation of the employee.  When an additional hazardous substance enters the workplace, information about it shall be distributed and training shall be conducted for the appropriate employees.  The superintendent shall cause a file to be maintained indicating when training and informing takes place.

School district personnel who will be instructing or otherwise working with students shall disseminate information about the hazardous chemicals they will be working with as part of the instructional program.  School district personnel are required to disseminate the information when the materials are used in the instructional program.
