OSHA Compliance Programs

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration's hazard communication standard consistently ranks among the most frequently cited as a result of inspections. Generally, the hazard communication standard applies to any defined hazardous chemical used in the workplace. All employers are required to inform their employees of the potential health hazards associated with exposure to such chemicals used or stored in the workplace. Information must be transmitted through a program which comprises such elements as:

  • A written plan
  • Warning labels on stationary containers;
  • Material safety data sheets; and
  • Employee training programs

OSHA interpretations state that 'if a chemical is used on a regular basis and if over-exposure to this chemical could create a medical problem for the employee, it has to be tested. Once tested, and found to be within compliance limits, sampling does not have to be redone unless there is a change in workplace practices or engineering controls (includes ventilation seasonal changeovers). However, it is legally prudent to retest , especially known Class I Carcinogens at least once a year.
