Chemical Safety - Hazard Communication

Chemical Safety Program

The Chemical Safety Program is designed for all employees working with hazardous chemicals, including oils, solvents, corrosives, etc., in all work areas, except laboratories. Laboratory workers should refer to the Laboratory & Research Safety Program.

Each department where chemicals are used has developed and implemented a Hazard Communication Plan to transmit information on the hazards of chemicals used by individuals in their department by labeling containers, ensuring safety data sheets (SDSs) are available, and providing training.

EHS is available to conduct an exposure assessment to determine if exposure to hazardous chemicals may exceed occupational exposure limits. We can also assess the need for personal protective equipment and provide chemical- and process-specific safety training.
