What is a Hazard Communication Plan?

A Hazzard Communication Plan, a requirement under OSAH, provides employees with information regarding the hazards and identities of chemicals to which they are exposed while working. The hazards must be communication to the employees through warning labels, training programs, and material safety data sheets. The plan must also contain an inventory of the hazardous chemicals or products in each work area and detail how the employer will inform employees of the hazards associated with these substances. The employer, upon written request, must provide the written plan to employees, their designated representatives and OSHA representatives.
