Hazard Communication Standard

Workers in certain industries have the potential to be exposed to hazardous chemicals daily. OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) requires that information about chemicals and their hazards must be available and understandable to all workers to maximize safety.

By complying with OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard:

  • Workers are educated on the dangers associated with chemicals used in the workplace
  • Hazardous chemicals are identified and labeled accordingly
  • Employees are trained properly
  • Your company has a published hazard communication document

In order to comply with OSHA’s standards, we start with a thorough chemical audit of your facility, obtain copies of current Safety Data Sheets from your vendors for each product and review each sheet for completeness and accuracy. If we find discrepancies, we contact your suppliers for clarification. Our team compiles important data from your SDS and enter them into a database program so that we can search your inventory. This enables us to see whether new or existing chemical hazards and regulations apply to you.

Next, we prepare and publish an inventory list of your hazardous chemical products in accordance with the rule, we prepare and publish your written Hazard Communication document in accordance with the regulation, and we prepare and publish you employee training manual. Lastly, we train your employees at your facility using interactive classroom style techniques.
