Hazard Communication FAQs

What is Hazard Communication, and why is it critical in the workplace?

Hazard Communication (HazCom) is a regulatory requirement that ensures employees are informed about the chemicals they are exposed to in the workplace. It involves identifying chemical hazards, communicating these hazards to employees, and training them on proper handling and emergency measures. It's critical because it empowers employees with the knowledge to protect themselves and others from chemical hazards, thereby reducing the risk of accidents and health issues.

How can Safety Experts assist my business with Hazard Communication?

Nain and Associates’ safety experts can help your business by developing a comprehensive HazCom program tailored to your specific needs. This includes inventorying chemicals, assessing their hazards, creating safety data sheets (SDSs) and labeling systems, and training employees on the dangers of the chemicals they work with and the protective measures they should take. Their program aims to make HazCom procedures easy to understand and implement for both management and employees.

What does a Hazard Communication program include?

A comprehensive Hazard Communication program includes several key components: a written HazCom plan that outlines how hazard information will be communicated within the facility, proper labeling of chemicals, maintaining and accessing Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) for all chemicals, and employee training on hazard recognition and safe handling practices. The program also includes methods for informing employees of the hazards associated with non-routine tasks and the hazards of chemicals in unlabeled pipes.

Why is employee training a crucial part of Hazard Communication?

Employee training is crucial because it ensures that workers understand the hazards associated with the chemicals they use and know how to protect themselves and their coworkers. Effective training covers interpreting labels and SDSs, proper use of personal protective equipment (PPE), emergency procedures, and specific measures for dealing with chemical spills or exposures. Regular training updates are necessary to accommodate new hazards and reinforce safety practices.

How often should Hazard Communication training be conducted?

OSHA requires that Hazard Communication training be conducted at the time of an employee's initial assignment to work with a hazardous chemical, and whenever a new chemical hazard the employees have not previously been trained about is introduced into their work area. Beyond these requirements, it's a good practice to conduct refresher training annually or whenever significant changes occur in the workplace that might affect chemical hazards.
