The OSHA Hazard Communication Standard is designed to protect employees from hazardous chemicals used or stored in the work setting. Also referred to as Right To Know, it requires that training and information be provided to any employees who have the potential of being exposed to a hazardous chemical "under normal condition of use or in a forseeable emergency."
HazCom training requires the presence of hazardous chemicals be communicated to employees in a variety of ways, including:
- The hazardous chemical inventory
- Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) / Safety Data Sheets (SDS)
- Labels, tags or signs
- The written hazard communication program
OSHA issued a final rule to align its Hazard Communication Standard with the Globally Harmonized System of Chemical Classification and Labeling (GHS), and all of those changes are now in effect. The changes focus on:
