Hazard Communication

Employees who work with hazardous chemicals outside a laboratory setting must receive Hazard Communication training as required by OSHA. Supervisors are encouraged to provide site-specific training that covers the unique chemical hazards that may be encountered by their staff. Contact EH&S for assistance.

The Hazard Communication Plan details the requirements of the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard, and are summarized below.

  • Assign staff to assure compliance with the standard
  • Prepare and submit an inventory of hazardous chemicals
  • Ensure all chemical containers are labeled
  • Obtain a safety data sheet for each chemical
  • Make safety data sheets available to employees
  • Conduct and document training of employees
