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.
