Chemical Safety in the Workplace

More than 8,700 kinds of chemicals are produced or imported into the United States each year, potentially exposing employees who handle these substances to illnesses and injuries. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) is designed to ensure that employees who handle, use, or store chemicals in the workplace know the dangers and how to reduce risk. These tips can help employers meet HCS regulations and protect employees.
