  2. The Purpose • The purpose of the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard is to ensure that an evaluation is made of the hazards of all chemicals produced or imported by chemical manufacturers or importers. It is also meant to ensure that information about their hazards is transmitted to affected employers and employees by means of a comprehensive hazard communication program

  3. Employer’s Responsibilities Under the Standard: • The employer is responsible for developing and implementing a hazard communication program which contains information on the following:

  4. Hazard Evaluation for Materials • Warning Labels • Safety Data Sheets (SDS’s) • Employee Information and Training • Written Hazard Communication Program

  5. Compliance Outline

  6. Chemical Inventory • Keep an inventory of all chemicals found in your workplace.

  7. SDS’S • Maintain a file of SDS’s for each material in your chemical inventory

  8. Hazard Determination • Review all SDS’s labels and use instructions for each chemical to determine the potential hazards

  9. Training • Provide Hazard Communication training for each employee in your work area on an annual basis. This training may include handling hazards of both routine and non-routine tasks
