An excerpt from ISNetworld® RAVS®* Safety plan Hazard Communication Program (GHS) Program
About 32 million workers are potentially exposed to one or more chemical hazards. There are an estimated 575,000 existing chemical products, and hundreds of new ones are being introduced annually. This poses a serious problem for exposed workers and their employers. Chemical exposure may cause or contribute to many serious health effects such as heart ailments, kidney and lung damage, sterility, cancer, burns, and rashes. Some chemicals may also be safety hazards and have the potential to cause fires and explosions and other serious accidents.
Because of the seriousness of these safety and health problems, and because many employers and employees know little or nothing about them, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued, in 1983, a rule called “Hazard Communication” that applies to employers in the manufacturing sector industry. The scope of the rule was expanded in 1987 to include employers in the non-manufacturing (including construction) sector, and revised again in May 2012 to align it with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS).
The basic goal of the standard is to ensure that employers and employees know and understand about chemical hazards and how to protect themselves. This knowledge, in turn, should help to reduce the incidence of chemical source illnesses and injuries.
This Hazard Communication Program establishes uniform requirements to assure that the hazards of all chemicals imported into, produced or used in U.S. workplaces are evaluated, and that the resultant hazard information and associated protective measures are transmitted to affected employers and potentially exposed employees.
