Our Service Tailored to Your Industry

Chemical Management for Transport

Motor carriers face compliance complexities across all areas of their business. And if transporting and handling hazardous chemicals, the complexities increase exponentially. Understanding the driver, vehicle, and operational regulations can be challenging and carriers often need to go above and beyond these regulations to effectively manage risk. This service provides the oversight resources, and experience you need to help you reduce that risk.

Chemical Management for Transport
Chemical Management for Industrial

Chemical Management for Industrial

Employees in manufacturing may face a variety of chemical hazards. To protect them from harm and your company from violations requires a knowledge of these hazards and compliance with the requirements. This service takes the risk — and the hassle — out of chemical management at your operation.

Chemical Management for Healthcare

This service provides the means for healthcare facilities to stay healthy themselves. Because healthcare facilities — from hospitals to dental offices — deal with chemicals of all kinds, they’re one of the most hazardous places to work. Eliminate the hazards and time-consuming hassles of chemical management with the industry’s stress-free, full-service solution.

Chemical Management for Healthcare
Chemical Management for Education

Chemical Management for Education

Education employees who are at risk from handling and/or cleaning chemicals must have a proper program in place to protect them. Private schools must comply with the relevant OSHA requirements, and although OSHA doesn’t cover public schools, half the states operate plans that apply equivalent standards to public employers, with the remaining states usually adopting similar standards. Protect your staff — and students — with our service.

Chemical Management for Construction & Utility

Construction and utility workers comprise about 5 percent of the U.S. workforce but suffer 20 percent of work-related fatalities, in addition to the numerous non-fatal injuries. One of those is dealing with hazardous chemicals. Keep your workers safe on the jobsite by having our service oversee the countless complexities of the regulations and risks.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Keep a list of hazardous chemicals in the workplace
  • Prepare and follow a written HazCom program
  • Make sure all chemical containers are properly labeled
  • Make sure safety data sheets (SDSs) are available to employees
  • Provide hazard communication training to employees

A written hazard communication program helps employers to inform and train their employees properly and to design and put in place employee protection programs. It also provides necessary hazard information to employees, so they can participate in, support, and be part of the protective measures at their workplaces.

Employers must have a GHS-style, 16-section SDS for each chemical which is considered to be a health or physical hazard as those terms are defined in the standard, except for those products specifically exempted under the HazCom regulation at 1910.1200(b)(6).

OSHA says you must train "employees," which are defined in 1910.1200 as "a worker who may be exposed to hazardous chemicals under normal operating conditions or in foreseeable emergencies. Workers such as office workers or bank tellers who encounter hazardous chemicals only in non-routine, isolated instances are not covered."

Workers who encounter hazardous chemicals only in non-routine, isolated instances are not covered. For instance, if a receptionist or salesperson occasionally delivers a phone message to an area where chemicals are used, he or she would not be covered. But if workers routinely bring production or sales paperwork to that area, or if they deliver or pick up sealed boxes of chemicals, they have to be trained. If you are not sure if certain employees are "routinely exposed," include them in the training. It is better to train too many people than to miss some people and risk an OSHA fine.

Under the HazCom Standard, your employees have the right to training about:

  • The HazCom Standard itself
  • Operations in the workplace where hazardous chemicals are present
  • The hazards of the chemicals in their work area
  • How they can detect a release of those chemicals
  • How they can get a copy of the written HazCom program
  • Where SDSs are located and how they can access them
  • The labels found on containers of hazardous chemicals
