Risk Management & Safety

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Hazard Communication standard is located in 29 CFR 1910.1200. The purpose of this standard is to ensure that the hazards of all chemicals are evaluated and that information concerning their hazards is communicated to employees. The communication of information is accomplished primarily through container labeling, material safety data sheets, and employee training. The UNLV written Hazard Communication Program is available for review.
