OSHA recognizes the dangers of chemicals when used improperly and/or when employees don’t realize the dangers due to lack of knowledge. The HCS is designed to eliminate potential dangers by ensuring employees have the information necessary to protect themselves and their coworkers. This information is provided in two forms: Safety Data Sheets and Chemical Labels.
Chemical safety labels provide quick, important information about a chemical which could save lives. They are effective in communicating health and physical hazards, as well as how to minimize or prevent adverse effects resulting from exposure to the hazardous chemical or improper storage or handling. Labels are affixed to, printed on, or attached to the container of a hazardous chemical, or the outside packaging.
Under the HAZCOM standard, employees have a right to know how to read chemical labels and understand the information presented before dealing with hazardous chemicals.
This training will cover the basic content and interpretation of standardized Chemical Safety Labels.
