Hazard Communication Plan

Overview

Hazard Communication (Hazcom) is intended to provide direction and assistance for employees who need to be aware of chemical hazards in their workplace. Hazard Communication is an OSHA regulation (29 CFR 1910.1200) and requires employers to ensure employees know and understand the hazards associated with the chemicals they may be exposed to during their work activities. Additionally, the Hazcom program is designed to ensure employees understand where they can obtain information about the chemicals, what the information means and how to protect themselves.
