Hazard Communication Training
OSHA has estimated that
more than 32 million workers are exposed to more than 650,000 hazardous chemical products. This poses a serious
problem for exposed employers and their employees.
Hazard Communications is mandated by federal and state laws that require employers to
inform/communicate to employees about chemical hazards in the workplace.
OSHA has created the Hazard
Communications standard 29 CFR 1910.1200 to ensure that the hazards of all chemicals produced or
imported by chemical manufacturers or importers are evaluated, and that information concerning that hazard is
transmitted to affected employers and employees.
