Hazard Communication (Construction)
National Summary

OSHA's hazard communication requirements for construction employers mirror the general industry regulations. The Hazard Communication Standard (HCS or hazcom) is intended to ensure that employers make their employees aware of the hazards to which they may be exposed. This is accomplished by having a written hazard communication program that addresses how they will communicate hazards to their employees, by using labels and material safety data sheets (MSDSs), and by having a training program. Hazcom is one of the most important and also one of the most frequently violated OSHA standards.
