Chemical exposure can cause debilitating immediate and long-term health effects, including death. To protect employees from exposure to hazardous chemicals in the workplace, OSHA established the Hazard Communication Standard (HCS). The HCS is a globally harmonized system of hazard communication.
The purpose of the Globally Harmonized System is to standardized how we communicate about chemical hazards in the workplace.
