Mandatory Reference for ADS Chapter 529

June 19, 1996
Rev. September 3, 1998


The establishment of a Hazard Communication Program (HCP) in the Agency for International Development is to comply, at all A.I.D. facilities, with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) for using hazardous chemicals. The HCS requires all employers to determine the types of hazardous chemicals in their workplaces, usually by inventory, provide this information to their employees, and train employees in the safe use and proper handling of the chemicals they use in their workplace.
