Hazard communication

Employers that have hazardous chemicals in their workplaces are required by OSHA's Hazard Communication Standard (HCS), 29 CFR 1910.1200, to implement a hazard communication program. The program must include labels on containers of hazardous chemicals, safety data sheets (SDSs) for hazardous chemicals, and training for workers. Each employer must also describe in a written program how it will meet the requirements of the HCS in each of these areas. 

This training will cover 

  • Hazard classification for health and physical hazards, as well as classification of mixtures
  • Explanation of the signal word, pictogram, hazard statement and precautionary statements required on each label
  • Explanation of the information provided in each section of the data sheet
  • Hazards associated with chemicals, appropriate measures to take for those hazards, and how to obtain additional information 
  • Written program requirements, and
  • Employee training requirements
