Turpentine Awareness

Training Time: 21 minutes (13 minutes video time, 8 minutes test time)

Turpentine, also called the spirit of turpentine, oil of turpentine, or wood turpentine, is a fluid obtained by distilling resin from pine trees and other coniferous trees. It is a colorless, volatile liquid with a strong odor. Turpentine is often used as a solvent or thinner for oil-based paints and varnishes. Working with or around turpentine is sometimes unavoidable, so it is critical that you use the proper PPE, follow standard procedures, and know how to handle leaks, spills, and other emergency situations.
