Hazard Communication in Beverage Manufacturing

Manufacturing employers engaged in businesses where chemicals are used, distributed, or produced for use or distribution must comply with the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA) Hazard Communication Standard. This standard requires that manufacturing employers communicate certain information regarding hazards and appropriate protective measures to employees by taking the five steps discussed below.

  1. Employers must develop and maintain a written hazard communication program that provides information about chemical hazards in the workplace. This program must contain a list of hazardous chemicals used by the employer in its operations and safety data sheets (SDSs) pertaining to these chemicals.
  2. Employers must maintain an SDS in the workplace for each hazardous chemical, and ensure that SDSs are readily accessible during each work shift to employees when they are in their work area.
