The Importance of Hazard Communication
Our team at SafT Integration recommends opening a frequent communication line between you and your employees. An effective way to stay connected is to integrate a hazard communication program that includes extensive employee training.
What is Hazard Communication?
Employers in the United States are obligated to disclose all hazardous materials at the workplace under the Hazard Communication Standard. The Hazard Communication Standard means you and your company must be aware of all dangerous materials at the workplace.

The Importance Of Safety Data Sheets
This is a mistake that companies frequently make, proving to be costly. The purpose of chemical safety sheets is to tell you how NOT to get hurt. Be sure to follow the safety data sheet instructions and obtain the proper labeling.
Second Container Labeling
Pouring any chemical substance into an unmarked secondary container is a huge mistake. It’s dangerous and not recommended. If not labeled correctly, any chemical substance stored in an unmarked secondary container could result in a hefty fine or even cause death. This is why it is essential to label them appropriately.
HazCom aligns with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) to attach pictograms to large drums of chemicals. Pictograms indicate whether a substance is flammable, toxic, or harmful.
Food Grade Containers
Using food-grade containers to hold hazardous chemicals can be the difference between life and death. You can find a perfect cautionary tale illustrating this point in the video above.
