Safety data sheet to assist your workers with HazCom
Workers have the right to know and understand the hazardous chemicals they use and how to work with them safely. This is the reason OSHA created the Hazard Communication standard. To ensure the accuracy, consistency, and effectiveness of the hazard information provided to downstream users, OSHA has requirements for hazard classification, labeling elements, and safety data sheet (SDS) format. To assist employers with their training efforts, the Agency published wallet cards to help understand the pictograms and the hazards they represent.
The wallet cards picture the nine pictograms, along with a quick response (QR) code, which can be used to learn more about training, labeling, and SDS requirements. Employers and employees simply scan the QR code for more information.
