Audit found deficiencies related to hazard communication

November 1, 2019

According to the Health and Safety (HS) audit conducted by the Chancellors Office Audit and Advisory services between April and May 2019, the operational and administrative controls for HS as of May 17, 2019, were unlikely to provide reasonable assurance that risks were being managed and objectives were met. The purpose of this announcement is to remind the campus community of the requirement to ensure that safety data sheets are readily available for all employees who work with hazardous materials, along with other requirements like ensuring that employees who work with hazardous materials have proper training and containers have the minimum label requirements. See EH&S website linked below to find the hazard communication plan which has also been updated as required by the CO audit(section 8 outlines the Safety Data Sheet requirements).

Attached is HSU’s hazards communication plan and below you will find links to EH&S’ website for hazardous material handling.
