Hazard Communication Training
Components of the HCP include training, chemical labeling and inventories, safety data sheets, hazard assessments, and exposure controls. The UCSB Hazard Communication Program
Safety Data Sheets (SDS) are developed by the chemical manufacturer to provide information concerning the safe use of the product. They provide workers and emergency personnel with information about physical properties (melting point, boiling point, flash point, etc.), toxicity, health effects, first aid measures, reactivity, storage, disposal, protective equipment, and spill-handling procedures. SDSs are required by law to be readily available for every hazardous chemical at each worksite along with an up-to-date chemical inventory.
