Hazardous Materials & Chemicals
Scott Asprey, RIBA safety educator
Did you know that both your employees and all your sub-contractors are required to have a list of all chemicals and be trained on hazardous materials…?
Section 1910.1200 or Construction 1926.59 (5th most cited infarction by OSHA)
Remember, it’s your responsibly for the safety and training of all your employees and to supply a job site free from all recognized safety and health hazards. If you’re the general contractor, you are responsible to be sure all subs are following your safety program, which involves HAZARDOUS MATERIAL and CHEMICALS.
