UL EHS Sustainability and SESHA have partnered together to develop courses specific to the semiconductor and high-tech industries, a collection of 18 modules designed by safety experts and adult learning specialists. The semiconductor and high-tech industries comprise a unique amount and level of job hazards, and finding quality, job-specific training on those hazards can be difficult. This new suite of online courses provides a comprehensive safety training foundation for SESHA partners.
The OSHA Outreach Training Program provides training on the recognition, avoidance, abatement, and prevention of safety and health hazards. UL and SESHA partnered to offer this High-tech/Semiconductor industry-specific version of the OSHA’s General Industry training. Please note that this is a voluntary program and does not create turnkey compliance with OSHA standards. None of the courses in this program are considered a certification. Each worker in the geographic jurisdiction of the Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Act who successfully completes the program will receive a completion card issued by the U.S. Department of Labor.
To stay safe at work, it is important that you know about the hazards in your environment and the practices and programs your employer has in place to keep you and your co-workers healthy and safe. These courses will help you understand workplace hazards and how to avoid them using controls. The courses are ideal for all semiconductor fabrication workers, including semiconductor fabrication supervisors and office workers.
Semiconductor fabrication involves many hazardous liquid chemicals and gases that can be dangerous if people do not handle them properly. These courses will help you understand which liquid chemicals and gases you may encounter, what controls your employer has in place to minimize the danger and what you can do to remain healthy and safe. The courses are ideal for all semiconductor workers who work inside fabrication facilities.
Electricity can shock or electrocute you if you do not recognize hazards and take proper precautions. Take this course to learn about the characteristics of electricity and electrical hazards. This suite will help you understand the importance of electrical risk assessments. It will also provide guidance about written electrical safety programs and controls, such as lockout-tagout, that can help prevent accidents. You will also learn how to respond in the event of an electrical emergency. Ideal learners are semiconductor fabrication workers.
Where does your job fit in with the entire semiconductor fabrication process? Take these courses to find out! You will learn about the steps of the process, the types of hazards involved in them and the controls in place to keep workers from being hurt. These courses are ideal for all semiconductor workers who work inside fabrication facilities.
The energy used during the semiconductor fabrication process can be dangerous. Take these courses to learn about the practices and programs, such as lockout/tagout, that your employer expects you to use to remain safe when working with energized equipment. These courses are ideal for all semiconductor fabrication workers.
