Toxicology Research Intern
|July 10, 2014 - August 10, 2014|
|Employment Type:||Intern - Part Time|
The associate’s primary function will be to research and compile the knowledge gained. This information will be used to improve the knowledge of the Automotive Industry Action Group’s (AIAG’s) Globally Harmonized System (GHS) working group for SDS authoring as it applies to the new OSHA HazCom 2012 rules from the GHS enacted by the United Nations (UN).
The goal of the research to be carried out is to provide sufficient details on the requirements of the system as they apply to materials used in the automotive industry. The details provided may be used to create automotive industry-wide solutions or guidelines which will be pushed by AIAG to the entire automotive supply chain. Subject matter experts for regulations, materials and other pertinent topics will be available for consultation.
Time and research permitting, the associate may also assist in the development of the guide on the proper steps to take when updating an existing MSDS to the new SDS format and when developing an SDS for an existing product where one did not exist. They may also assist in the determination of when the person using the guide should request outside assistance. The finished product of this stage would be a step by step guide for small to medium size businesses with limited resources or knowledge to use as guidance in SDS creation.
The project would run from six months to one year in duration depending on team direction determination and associate availability. Great benefits to the associate include excellent industry networking, direct access to industry subject matter experts and the ability to provide direct value to a real current regulatory issue.
Project overview is expected to be managed via bi-weekly status meetings with industry personnel. Clear goals will be established for the objectives described above. Due to the unpredictable nature of research, a schedule cannot be created until an associate is sourced.
