Hazard Communication

What is Hazard Communication?

Hazard Communication is an organized program designed to meet the requirements of the Code of Federal Regulations (29 CFR 1910.1200), and the Idaho General Safety and Health Standards. It has specific requirements regarding an employee's right to know and understand chemical hazards in the workplace. The Hazard Communication policy outlines requirements and responsibilities for the program at various levels of involvement. These are summed up here for supervisors, employees, and unit administrators.
