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)
- Material Safety Data Sheets (go to the Material Safety Data Sheet link to obtain info about a particular chemical)
- Chemical Labels
