Washington State Department of Health developed it as a model curriculum for HIV/AIDS education for educators teaching classes for health professions licensure. It presents the specific topics required by law. It is not a self-study manual. Educators should present the material in a traditional classroom style.
Who should take this course:
in industries with a North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code in the following major groups:
Agriculture and forestry industries.
Mining, quarrying, and oil and gas extraction.
Transportation, pipeline, communications, electric, gas, and sanitary services.
Automotive repair, services, and garages.
Miscellaneous repair services.
These industries, selected by the Legislature, typically have or use chemical products that are hazardous and may create potential exposure to employees.
