Hazard Communication Standard (1910.1200)

Communicating safety information to employees is accomplished by:
- Labeling containers of hazardous chemicals, which serves as an immediate warning of hazards
- Safety Data Sheets, which are sources of detailed information on the hazardous chemical
- Training on the hazards
