OSHA's hazard communication standard covers the required topics for this situation. 29 CFR 1910.1200
This would be the regulatory equivalent for the awareness training you mention.

If you have additional specific questions please let me know..

I had a request from an office worker for some type of chemical awareness training. She does not work in a lab or in an area where chemicals are in use, but in the main office of a department that includes labs and areas of chemical storage within the department. I drafted a training presentation that covers labeling systems and how we label our labs, and what to do if an emergency is reported.

What I would like to know is are there people on this list who offer some sort of awareness training to their office workers? If so, what do you cover?

Thank you,
