Hazard Communication

OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard, also known as HazCom, is a federal regulation (29 CFR 1910.1200) that specifies that when hazardous chemicals are present in the workplace, employees have a right to know about the risks involved with storing and handling such substances. The Hazard Communication Standard is now aligned with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) which is a worldwide standard.
