Metalworking Fluids 125: Health & Safety MWF 125 provides participants with an understanding of the fundamentals of the primary health and safety issues with which fluid managers, machine operators, shop stewards and managers must be familiar to provide workers with a safe work environment. The program opens with an overview of essential industrial hygiene and metalworking fluid toxicology concepts. It then teaches the fundamentals of mist generation in metalworking fluid systems; reinforcing these concepts with a case study. A case study is used to familiarize participants with metalworking fluid microbiology fundamentals. This fictionalized case study steps through microbiology basics, microbe health risks, and microbial contamination control. The final course module presents an overview of Global Harmonized Standards (GHS) and their impact on the metalworking fluid stakeholder community.
