Compliance Publishing Corp., a publisher of employee safety compliance information, has released a program that allows online creation, modification, and publication of the OSHA-required Hazard Communication Program and Exposure Control Plan.
In order to ensure chemical safety in the workplace and communication about hazardous substances, OSHA's Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) requires the development and dissemination of this information in a Hazard Communication Program.
According to CPC, OSHA estimates that tens of millions of workers are at risk of occupational exposure to blood or other bodily fluids that may carry HIV, hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis C (HCV), and other diseases. An Exposure Control Plan can assist a company in reducing employee exposure risks.
Both the Hazard Communication Program and Exposure Control Plan online are available to all Compliance customers. Resources available to users include federal regulations, safety training, and a complete set of material safety data sheets (MSDS).
