Identifying safety risks inherent to the chemical industry, this new book identifies steps that safety managers can implement in their facilities to minimize the occurrence and severity of accidents. Drawing together in one volume everything employers need to know about applicable OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) standards, this book provides expert, easy-to-read insight into interpreting OSHA's chemical manufacturing standards, training requirements, and Hazard Communication Standard. Intended as a reference tool for use in the office and on the production floor, this book allows safety managers to quickly understand complicated OSHA requirements. It removes much of the confusion and stress from the compliance process by providing detailed examples of various required documents and processes. For added convenience, the authors include a sample Hazard Communication Program, a comprehensive and easy-to-use sample chemical hygiene plan, a sample chemical safety program, and a sample chemical industry emergency response plan, all of which conform to OSHA standards.
