Hazard Communication

The Hazard Communication Standard, also known as HazCom or the "Right to Know Law" was created by Cal-OSHA to provide individuals with information about the chemical hazards on the job, and how to protect themselves against those hazards.

Information can be obtained by the following methods:

  • Training (all employees must have basic training)
  • Safety Data Sheets (go to the Safety Data Sheet link to obtain info about a particular chemical)
  • Chemical Labels
