Hazard Communication Ranks High on OSHA’s Top Violations List
With over 4,500 violations, Hazard Communication is #2 on OSHA’s top-cited violations. The top five sections within the Hazard Communication Standard most cited are:
- Developing, implementing and maintaining a written hazard communication program.
- Providing effective information and training on hazardous chemicals.
- Maintaining copies of required Safety Data Sheets that are readily accessible.
- Obtaining and developing a Safety Data Sheet for each hazardous chemical.
- Product/hazard identification with words, pictures, symbols.
Ultimately, OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard is designed to ensure that information about chemical and toxic substance hazards in the workplace and associated protective measures is disseminated to workers. As an employer, you are responsible for increasing understanding and reducing risks for your employees to avoid incidents and fines. Do you have an efficient solution in place?
