Profile

Hazard Communication Program

Northwestern's Hazard Communication Program provides important information to help faculty, staff, and students make informed judgments about hazardous materials with which they work and take appropriate safety precautions.

While the program is based on the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard (a worker "right-to-know" law), it incorporates chemical inventory reporting required by EPA. The program applies to any area of the University where hazardous chemicals are used.

The hazard communication program is also available as a PDF.
