Steps to an Effective HazCom Program

Employees (e.g., healthcare workers) are entitled to information about the identities and hazards of the chemicals they are potentially exposed to when working. Employers (e.g., oral healthcare facilities) that have hazardous chemicals in their workplaces are required by OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard, 29 CFR 1910.1200, to implement HazCom 2012. 2 An effective HazCom program may be accomplished in six steps (Figure 4).
