Overview

Addressing the five primary elements of the hazcom standard, this handbook provides practical implementation tips and strategies for incorporating computers and computer networks into the Hazard Communication Standard (hazcom, 29 CFR 1910.1200) compliance process. Although most organizations have some components of the standard in place, few are able to comply with all five facets of the standard and often fall short of full compliance. In fact, failure to comply with the hazcom standard consistently ranks among the top violations cited by OSHA. Automating Hazcom helps safety managers—and anyone else responsible for managing their facility's MSDS (material safety data sheets)—with expert guidance for choosing a compliance software program and implementing the strategies needed to efficiently incorporate an electronic element into their companies' safety programs. Each chapter ends with a quiz and an exercise giving the reader practical firsthand experience with MSDS Administrator, a hazard communication software program provided by the authors. The included CD-ROM also contains the text of the Hazard Communication Standard, a template for a written hazard communication program, a sample MSDS document, an example of an employee training agenda and visual presentation slides, the NIOSH Pocket Guide to Chemical Hazards, and a glossary for navigating the often-complex language of the requirements.
