California's hazard communication regulation requires employers to inform employees of the hazardous substances to which they are exposed on the job. Increased awareness and proper training of the chemicals used promotes safer work practices.
Elements of the program include:
- Inventory of the chemicals on site
- A written Hazard Communication program
- Current Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS)
- Proper labeling on all containers and secondary containers
- Employee training
