The safe storage of hazardous materials is essential to any workplace safety program in order to prevent injuries, fires and other hazardous conditions.
OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard requires employers to inform workers about the hazards of chemicals they come in contact with through Safety Data Sheets (SDS) and appropriate labels. Information about the identities and hazards of chemicals and other hazardous materials must be available and understandable, and workers must receive training on the proper and safe handling of all hazardous materials.
For more information see OSHA’s Fact Sheet on effective hazard communication.
