Bringing Your Hazard Communication Program Into Compliance
Chemicals pose a wide range of health hazards (such as irritation, sensitization and carcinogenicity) and physical hazards (such as flammability, corrosion and reactivity). OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) helps ensure that information about these hazards and about protective measures is disseminated throughout your organization.
Chemical manufacturers and importers are required to evaluate the hazards of the chemicals they produce or import, and to provide information about them through labels on shipped containers and safety data sheets (SDSs). Further, all employers with hazardous chemicals in their workplaces must prepare and implement a written hazard communication program. They also must label containers, provide employees with access to SDSs and conduct training for all potentially exposed employees.
On March 26, 2012, OSHA adopted portions of the United Nations’ Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) into the HCS. OSHA provided for a four-year transition period for organizations, as well. This means that your organization must come into full compliance with the revised HCS by June 1, 2016. READ MORE
