Hazard Communication Program Procedures

The HCPC will take appropriate steps to reasonably ensure all containers received for use are clearly labeled as to the contents, note the appropriate hazard warning, and list the manufacturer's name and address. Such steps include working with area supervisors.

The area supervisor/faculty in each department or office ensures all secondary containers are labeled with either an extra copy of the original manufacturer's label or with labels marked with the identity and the appropriate hazard warning, along with notifying the ADA/Safety Coordinator of these new items, For help with labeling, contact the ADA/Safety Coordinator at 309.341.5265.

Carl Sandburg College is committed to providing employees with a safe and healthy workplace. It is the policy of the college that employees report unsafe conditions and do not perform work tasks if the work is considered unsafe. Employees must report all accidents, injuries and unsafe conditions to their supervisors. No such report will result in retaliation, penalty or another disincentive.

The college will provide affected employees a Hazard Communication Program including information on the contents of the OSHA Hazard Communications Standard, the hazardous properties of chemicals with which they work, safe handling procedures and measures to take to protect themselves from these chemicals.

This program applies to all work operations at Carl Sandburg College where you may be exposed to hazardous chemicals under normal working conditions or during an emergency situation. All offices and departments will participate in the Hazard Communication Program. Management of this program and updates are the responsibility of the ADA/Safety Coordinator phone number 309.341.5265.

The Hazard Communication Program Committee (HCPC) is the program coordinator with overall responsibility for the program including reviewing and updating this plan as necessary, being placed in coordination with the Risk Management Committee. The HCPC typically includes the following positions: Director of Public Safety, Director of Human Resources, and the ADA/Safety Coordinator along with other members of the campus community. The composition of the HCPC membership may change (additions or deletions) as appropriate.

The HCPC is responsible for establishing and monitoring the Carl Sandburg College SDS program. To the extent reasonable, the HCPC ensures procedures are developed to obtain the necessary SDS and reviews incoming SDSs for new or significant health and safety information. The HCPC/ADA Safety Coordinator makes reasonable efforts to see that any new information is communicated to affected employees.

Copies of SDSs for all hazardous chemicals to which employees are exposed or are potentially exposed are maintained and readily available in every room in which chemicals are housed or by going online and searching the product name.

SDSs are readily available to all employees during each work shift. If an SDS is not available, contact the ADA/Safety Coordinator at 309.341.5265.

When revised SDSs are received or new products used, the SDS books are updated by the ADA/Safety Coordinator, only after being advised by the appropriate department supervisor or faculty member that new items have been received on campus.

The HCPC/ADA/Safety Coordinator is responsible for the Hazard Communication Program and ensures all program elements are carried out. It is the responsibility of this committee, through regular routine inspections of the SDS books and current materials that are present on the campus.

Everyone who works with or is potentially exposed to hazardous chemicals will receive initial training on the hazard communication standard and this plan. Each new employee will attend an orientation that includes the following information and training: 

  • An overview of the OSHA hazard communication standard
  • The hazardous chemicals present at his/her work area
  • The physical and health risks of hazardous chemicals
  • Symptoms of overexposure
  • How to determine the presence or release of hazardous chemicals in the work area
  • How to reduce or prevent exposure to hazardous chemicals through the use of control procedures, work practices and personal protective equipment
  • Steps the company has taken to reduce or prevent exposure to hazardous chemicals
  • Procedures to follow if employees are overexposed to hazardous chemicals
  • How to read labels and SDS to obtain hazard information
  • Location of the SDS file and written Hazard Communication program
Prior to introducing a new chemical hazard into any department or office, each employee in that department of office will be given information and training as outlined above for the new chemical hazard, this additional training will be provided by the ADA/Safety Coordinator.
A list of all known hazardous chemicals used by our employees will be maintained in the SDS manual. This manual includes the name of the chemical or product, the manufacturer, the work area in which the chemical or product is used. Further information on each chemical or product may be obtained online by entering the product name in the search bar.
