OSHA: What You Need to Know Right NOW

 

osha global hazard symbolsIn 1983 OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) published a Hazard Communication Standard (HCS). This became know as the "Employee Right-to-know" standard. In a nutshell, it meant workers had the right to know about hazardous chemicals in their workplace.
 
In 2012 OSHA revised this standard and it is now known as the "Right-to-understand" standard. With this revision OSHA mandated that all employers train workers on two parts of this new standard by December 1, 2013. Download this handout and familiarize yourself with new labeling requirements and the new format.
 
Whether you work in the office and encounter only toner for a copy machine or you work in the field and wonder what's in that spray foam we use in houses, this standard affects you. OSHA requires this training for all employees regardless of potential exposures.
