Complying with OSHA, DOT and EPA Rules Regarding Handling, Labeling and Shipping of Hazardous Materials

American workers are exposed to several highly hazardous chemicals throughout the workplace. Many employers manufacture or ship these chemicals as a product or waste. It is frequent that workers become ill or injured due to the mishandling of chemicals. Therefore, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has mandated several rules regarding hazard chemical handling and communication. The Department of Transportation (DOT), however, exercises complete jurisdiction when it comes to roadways, and have specific employer rules. In addition, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has jurisdiction for workplaces that generate waste products that can affect the environment in an adverse way.

There can be citations for the employer for not correctly handling, labeling, shipping chemicals and for not adequately protecting workers.
