Overview

Some 70,000 hazardous materials are in various workplaces across the country...regulated by the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard not only for chemical manufacturers and distributors, but soon, for all other U.S. manufacturers—and many others as well. This guide provides a step-by-step understanding of the standard. With this book you should be able to plan, organize and operate your company's Hazard Communication Program...to protect your employees (and your company) as required by OSHA. This handbook is especially intended for use by industrial hygienists, safety directors, safety engineers, occupational health departments, managers, environmental engineers, legal staff, and consultants. Hazard Communication and OSHA Requirements explains carefully in non-legalistic terms just what will be required, and when. But even more important, it explains in detail, with examples where appropriate.
