Complying With OSHA's Hazard Communications Standard
Small businesses still having trouble with OSHA's Hazcom Standard can try MsdsDigital.com's free online msds binder
Chicago, Illinois, April 24, 2017 (Newswire.com) - The OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) is something every workplace must comply with. In simple terms, it refers to the idea that employees must know if they are working with any dangerous chemicals, and what harm these chemicals can cause. Likewise, workplaces are required to inform employees what they must do to keep themselves safe from chemical exposure. This information can be found on the products safety data sheet (formally called Msds Sheets)
Any company working with any chemicals must have a proper hazard communication policy that complies with OSHA’s framework. A company also needs to train its employees so that they understand how to protect themselves and prevent any bad things from happening. U.S. employers are liable to comply with OSHA guidelines. This means that if they don’t have a proper hazard communication policy in place, and their employees aren’t properly made aware of the chemical dangers and how to deal with them, then they may be found liable.
This liability law has only been in effect since before June 2016, but due to recent changes many small companies are still struggling to adapt to it.
