Safety Data Sheets (SDS)

Safety Data Sheets (SDS) ( 2 Files )

This safety learning module covers the content and interpretation of Safety Data Sheets (SDS) previously known as Materials Safety Data Sheets (MSDS).

MEMS fabrication requires the use of many chemicals, some which have potential hazards; therefore, before working in a fabrication facility one must know how to locate a SDS for a specific chemical and be able to extract all of the safety information that ensures a safe and accident free environment.  This learning module provides content and activities that allow the participants to locate SDSs, extract information and compare the potential hazards of two or more chemicals.  Participants will also identify the action needed in case of chemical exposure or spill using the information in a SDS.

This category contains an Instructor Guide, Participant Guide and supporting presentation.

Hazardous Materials Learning Module

Hazardous Materials Learning Module ( 1 Files )

This safety module includes the Hazardous Materials I and II Learning Modules.

These modules provide some of the content information needed to safely work with and around hazardous materials. Hazardous Materials (HazMat) I provides information on the federal regulations for HazMat training and
discusses the characteristics of chemicals that create physical hazards such as explosions and violent reactions.

Hazardous Materials II covers the characteristics of chemicals that are considered health hazards. It also covers how chemicals can enter the body and what one can do to prevent toxic exposure. Both of these units should
be studied prior to working in a MEMS fabrication facility.

The Participant Guides are available to the general public.  The Instructor Guides and supporting presentations are available to registered users.

Interpreting Chemical Labels

Interpreting Chemical Labels ( 1 Files )

This safety learning module covers the content and interpretation of chemical labels and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Diamond and ratings.

MEMS fabrication requires the use of many chemicals, many of which have potential hazards. Therefore, before working in a fabrication facility one must know how to locate and interpret information found on chemical labels.  NFPA diamonds are found throughout fabrication facilities as well as seen in everyday life. These diamonds are used to provide a quick visual of the potential hazards associated with a chemical; therefore, one should be able to interpret the colors and numbers seen on a NFPA diamond.  This learning module provides the information and the practice to do just that.

This category contains an Instructor Guide, Participant Guide and supporting presentations.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) ( 1 Files )

This safety module includes the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Learning Module.

This module provides an overview of PPE and the type of PPE that is required of specific jobs within a manufacturing facility or laboratory.  It also covers how to properly wear and test PPE such as respirators. This learning module includes an activity and assessment.

The Participant Guide is available to the general public.  The Instructor Guide and supporting presentation is available to registered users.

Chemical Lab Safety Rules

Chemical Lab Safety Rules ( 1 Files )

This safety module covers some of the standard safety rules that one must apply when working in a fabrication facility or laboratory that contains hazardous chemicals.

This learning module - Chemical Lab Safety Rules - covers safety rules for one's personal safety when working with and around chemicals, handling and pouring chemicals properly, the specifics for working with solvents vs. corrosives, spill or leak response, and many other areas.  An activity and assessment are including in this learning module along with an observation checklist that you could use to observe participants in a laboratory environment and ensure that the safety rules are being adhered to.

The Participant Guide is available to the general public.  The Instructor Guide and supporting presentation are available to registered users.
