Hazard Communication Program

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) outlines employees' right to know about potential health risks in the workplace. This includes information on protective equipment and clothing and the proper procedures for the handling and storing of all chemicals and chemical products used in the workplace. Through employee training and education, Towson University hopes to reduce the number of injuries or illnesses that can be attributed to the improper use and handling of these products.


The Hazard Communication Program is designed to meet all of the requirements of federal and state regulations on workplace hazards. The program assists employees in better understanding their rights and resources.

Personnel have the option for the online courses or a formal presentation.
