It is the intent of Jordan School District to comply with the OSHA 29 CFR 1910.1200 (Hazard Communication Standard) by implementing an MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) program. It is the intent of Jordan School District to implement a comprehensive program of hazard identification, evaluation, and employee instruction pursuant to the OSHA Hazard Communication standard (29 CFR 1910.1200). The purpose of this program is to inform employees of all hazardous chemicals in their wok area at the time of their initial assignment, and whenever a new physical or health hazard the employees have not been informed about is introduced into their work area. All employees exposed to potentially hazardous chemicals have a right to know the potential for exposure, routes of exposure, hazards associated with the exposure, and methods in place to protect themselves. Therefore, Jordan School District has developed this program to ensure that all affected employees are appropriately informed and provided with adequate methods of personal protection.
It will be the responsibility of the District Safety Coordinator in conjunction with all departments and available specialists (i.e., Safety/Industrial Hygiene Consultants) to secure current information, develop and implement the Jordan School District's program and to insure compliance with all Hazard Communication Standard requirements. This Hazard Communication program will address the following:
- A procedure for determining the hazards of chemicals used or produced in the work place.
- A list of hazardous chemicals known to be present and listed by the name given on the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS)
- A procedure for obtaining and maintaining a complete set of Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs)
- An explanation of how training will be implemented, including contractors and non-routine tasks.
Copies of this written program will be available upon request to any employee, his designated representative, the Department of Labor and Industry, the Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health, or the Director of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.
