In 1971, the U.S. Department of Labor founded the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) in order to ensure all workers in America stay both safe and healthy at the workplace. Throughout this On-Demand training lesson, you will be introduced to OSHA standard 1910.1200, the Hazard Communications standard, which covers all physical forms of chemicals that may be present at your job. This standard also addresses the processes at your workplace that may produce these chemicals, such as welding and exhaust fumes.
Every year, OSHA publishes a list of its top 10 violations, and every year Hazard Communications is on that list, with over 5,000 infractions. This is for two primary reasons: most workplaces contain these hazardous materials, and a large number of employees do not follow the proper labeling, storing, and handling procedures for the chemicals found at their workplace. Use the information in this video and be able to properly deal with these hazardous materials, thus keeping your job site safer.
Ultimately, you need to be safe on the job. That is why OSHA was created, and that is also why you have the right to know how to keep yourself safe. This information can be found in many places, including your company's Material Safety Data Sheets. According to OSHA, there are currently 650,000 existing hazardous chemicals; it is critical to understand the best practices to stay safe on the job. This online training instructs employees how to avoid the dangers inherent in dealing with hazardous materials at work.
