OSHA - Hazard Communication Standard

The Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) requires chemical manufacturers, distributors, or importers to provide Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) to communicate the hazards of hazardous chemical products. The Safety Data Sheets need to be in a uniform format, and include the section numbers, the headings, and associated information. Please review the standard and additional information below:

Safety Data Sheets:

Below are the Safety Data Sheets for chemicals located on each campus site (with the exception of chemicals utilized in science labs).  These SDS sheets must be printed and kept in a binder in the school's front office and in the Plant Manager's office. Please ensure that you print double-sided and ensure that all pages are in order. The Safety Data sheets must be readily accessible to employees.
