The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has established a set of guidelines and requirements called the Hazard Communication Standards (HCS) that relate to the identification of hazardous chemicals, the health and safety risks those hazardous materials pose, and the appropriate safety precautions that lower the risk of illness and injury when handling those chemicals.
According to the Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) (29 CFR 1910.1200) 2012, the chemical manufacturer, distributor, or importer must give downstream users Safety Data Sheets (SDSs), also known as Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs), for each hazardous chemical in order to inform them of the hazards. The SDS and MSDS both include virtually the same information, but today the SDSs must be presented in a standardized, user-friendly, 16-section format. This guideline helps workers who handle dangerous chemicals become accustomed to the format and comprehend the SDSs' contents.
The SDS contains details on each chemical, including its physical, health, and environmental dangers. It also lists protective measures and safety instructions for handling, storing, and transporting the chemical.
The basic framework of HCS(Hazard Communication Standard) is defined in two major scopes:
1-Chemical manufacturers and importers are responsible for providing information about the identities and hazards of chemicals they produce or import.
2-All employers with hazardous chemicals in their workplaces are required to have a hazard communication program and provide information to employees about their hazards and associated protective measures.
What are the basic areas of HCS focus?
1-Classification of physical hazards,
2-Classification of health and environmental hazards,
ACS assessors have certified by OSHA(Occupational Safety and Health Administration) would help companies with training and implementing the HCS system align with GHS(Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals) requirements.
