Hazard Communication Programs

All employers (including small businesses) who operate a workplace where workers are exposed to hazardous chemicals, must develop, implement, and maintain a written hazard communication program that describes how the Hazard Communication (or HAZCOM) Standard is implemented in the employer's facility or workplace environment(s).

Under the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard, the written hazard communication program must be made available to employees upon request, and must contain four components:

  1. A list of hazardous chemicals known to be present in the workplace, and the methods employers will use to inform employees about hazards associated with non-routine tasks.
  2. Appropriate labeling.
  3. Safety data sheets (SDSs).
  4. Employee information and training.
