Hazard communication standard

Hazard Communication Standard

OSHA created the Hazard Communication Standard to help ensure your safety when working with hazardous chemicals.

Hazard Communication involves the communication of hazards about chemicals to employees, also know as the “Right To Know”.


Hazard communication program

Hazard Communication Program

Each school building has a written HazCom Program. This program is located in the Main Office of each building.

  • Employers will:

  • Provide training on hazardous materials

  • Discuss labels

  • Provide MSDS


Use chemicals safely

Use Chemicals Safely

  • Know the chemicals you are

    working with

  • Know the hazards and how to protect yourself

  • Store them properly

  • Use correct personal protective equipment - PPE


Physical hazards in

Physical Hazards In

Chemicals May Be:

  • Explosive

  • Compressed Gases

  • Flammable

  • Combustible Liquid

  • Unstable

  • Oxidizer

  • Organic Peroxide

  • Water-reactive


Health hazards

Health Hazards

Chemicals can:

  • Cause cancer

  • Be Poisonous / Toxic

  • Damage skin, internal organs,

    or nervous system

  • Be corrosive – acids, alkalines

  • Cause allergic reactions after repeated

    exposure


Chemicals may enter the body through

BloodbornePathogen

Training


The bloodborne pathogen standard

The Bloodborne Pathogen Standard

  • Required by OSHA 29 CFR 1910.1030

  • Schools are required to develop and implement an Exposure Control Plan to:

    • protect employees who are at risk for acquiring bloodborne diseases

    • protect those employees whose activities may involve contact with infectious body fluids


What is a bloodborne pathogen

What is a Bloodborne Pathogen?

Microorganisms that are carried in the blood that can cause disease in humans


Common bloodborne pathogen diseases

Common Bloodborne Pathogen Diseases

HIV

Hepatitis C

Hepatitis B


Human immunodeficiency virus hiv

Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)

  • HIV is the virus that leads to AIDS

  • HIV depletes the immune system

  • HIV does not survive well outside the body

  • No threat on contracting HIV through casual contact


Hiv is spread through

HIV is Spread Through

  • Blood to blood exposure

  • Transfusion of infected blood

  • Sharing of needles

  • Unprotected sexual intercourse

  • Born of infected mother


Hepatitis c hcv

Hepatitis C (HCV)

  • Hepatitis C is the most common chronic bloodborne infection in the United States

  • Symptoms include: jaundice, fatigue, abdominal pain, loss of appetite, intermittent nausea, vomiting

  • May lead to chronic liver disease

    and death


Hepatitis b hbv

Over 1 million people are infected

Symptoms include: jaundice, fatigue, abdominal pain, loss of appetite, intermittent nausea, vomiting

Hepatitis B (HBV)

  • Vaccination available

  • May lead to chronic liver disease, liver cancer, and death

  • HBV can survive for at least one week in dried blood

  • Symptoms can occur

  • 1 - 9 months after exposure


Hepatitis b vaccination

Hepatitis B Vaccination

  • Your school will offer the Hepatitis B Vaccination to the “At Risk Personnel” listed in the Exposure Control Plan

  • Consent/Refusal Form for vaccination must be completed by “At Risk Personnel”

  • Vaccine is provided at no cost

    to employees
