Hazard communication is based on the foundation that employees have the “Right to Know” and understand the hazards properties of the chemicals with which they are required to work or that are present in the workplace. An appropriate hazard communication program will ensure the necessary information is readily available and is clearly and consistently communicated within your company.
An effective hazard communications program will include documentation and procedures addressing the following:
- A Chemical Inventory
- Alignment with the Globally Harmonized System – GHS
- Safety Data Sheets – SDS
- Standardized Chemical Labeling
- An Employee Training Program
