HazCom Terminology: Untangling this top-violated regulation one term at a time
Although the Hazard Communication (HazCom) Standard has been around over 35 years, it remains one of the most confusing OSHA regulations for employers. OSHA 29 CFR 1910.1200 continues to be cited several thousand times each year, making it the top-violated regulation in Part 1910. Perhaps the confusion and noncompliance may be found in the very text of the standard — legal terminology that has been with the standard from the very beginning.
The HazCom Standard defines 43 terms in its definitions section, so the use of these words and phrases may make this particular regulation a challenge for employers in general industry, construction, shipyards, marine terminals, and longshoring. This webcast explores definitions of the key terms in the standard, as well as OSHA’s intent. The better you understand the terminology, the easier, faster, and less costly your compliance efforts may be. So don’t miss out. Register today!
