A Common Sense Approach to Chemical Safety for Medical and Dental Settings

Why are Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) important? When should you NOT clean up a chemical spill? Why is it dangerous to store chemicals alphabetically? How did one woman’s choice of gloves for handling chemicals lead to her death?

Every day, employees in medical and dental settings handle harmful—even deadly—chemicals. OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard, known as HazCom, requires employers to provide tools and training to protect workers from hazardous chemicals. This white paper provides information on HazCom and employees’ “Right to Know” about the dangers of chemicals that they may be exposed to as part of their job.

Learn about MSDS—they’re one of the tools HazCom requires of employers, yet nearly every year MSDS infringements are on OSHA's list of most frequently cited violations. Find out about exposure controls, including the proper gloves for handling different chemicals. Get information on how to properly store chemicals and how to handle chemical spills. Understand the responsibilities that both employers AND employees have in complying with HazCom.

Does your workplace meet the intent of OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard? Find out by reading "A Common Sense Approach to Chemical Safety for Medical and Dental Settings."
