Commonly referred to as: Chemical Hazards in the Healthcare Environment

​The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) defines hazardous materials (HazMat) as goods that are potentially harmful to health or to the environment.

”A substance will present the same hazard in all situations due to its innate chemical or physical properties and its actions on cells and tissues. Differences may exist in the risk posed by a substance depending on how the substance is contained or handled, personal protective measures used, and other conditions that result in or limit exposure.” OSHA

The OSHA Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) ensures safety in the workplace by providing clear, understandable information about the identities and hazards of chemicals found in the workplace.

•Hazard classification: specific criteria for classification of health and physical hazards and classification of mixtures.
•Labels: chemical manufacturers must provide a label that includes a harmonized signal word, pictogram, and hazard statement for each hazard class and category.
