Oct. 27 - US: Hazard Communication Standard Compliance Checklist for Employers

Posted Date: 
Monday, October 27, 2008

An article from Lawn and Landscape with some good HazCom related advice for employers, including:

  • Keep your MSDSs updated and ensure that the applicable MSDS is readily accessible to any employee who may be exposed to that hazardous chemical. It’s a good idea to keep a binder with all MSDSs in your main office — but also require crew leaders or other supervisors to have copies of applicable MSDSs in their trucks at job sites.
  • Know that your workers must understand how to read an MSDS and a chemical label.
  • Train employees in the importance of properly labeled chemical containers. An improperly labeled container can result in the wrong use of the chemical, a fire or explosion, and injuries or deaths.
