Hazard Communication Programs
Hazard Communication, also referred to as “Right to Know”,is often the most burdensome regulation for a company to handle. A company employee will work with and around many different chemicals during a workday. It is the company’s responsibility to provide that employee with training on how to properly protect themselves from any negative health effects attributed with those chemicals. ERS will provide your company with the following federally mandated Hazard Communication components:
- A written document outlining proper chemical handling procedures
- A complete MSDS procedure
- A complete inventory of all chemicals found on site
- Chemical container labeling

Businesses in a variety of industries make regular use of chemicals that can be dangerous or even deadly if handled incorrectly. Small manufacturing, automotive collision repair, and stone or concrete fabrication are just a few examples of businesses where employees may be required to handle hazardous chemicals on a regular basis. As the owner or operator of any such business, it’s your responsibility to ensure that the people who work for you understand the dangers presented by handling these chemicals and know the correct way to handle them safely. If you’re concerned about your workers’ safety and your compliance with federal and state regulations, Environmental Risk Services in Montgomery County, PA can help you educate your employees about safe chemical handling and get in compliance with the standards set by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
OSHA hazard communication standards are also known as the “Right to Know.” That means the people who work for you have a right to know which chemicals they’re working with and the potential dangers that can come from exposure to them. As an employer, you’re responsible for providing this information in the form of a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) that explains the properties of any hazardous chemicals, the effects of exposure to them, and any issues that could come from mixing them with other chemicals. You may also be required to provide right to know training or GHS hazard communication training which explains the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) so employees will have all the information they need to identify dangerous chemicals in the workplace.
