Understanding Hazard Communications & Materials



In the realm of workplace safety, the Hazard Communication standard, often referred to as the Right To Know, takes center stage at OASIS. This critical standard ensures that our Human Resource Management (HR) is well-informed about any hazardous ingredients in the products we procure, emphasizing the dissemination of this knowledge to our skilled workforce. To meet the requirements of this standard, Oasis has developed a comprehensive hazard communication program, a blueprint that safeguards our team. This program encompasses various elements crucial for a safe working environment.


1. Hazard Determination:

At the heart of our program lies the process of hazard determination. It's the method through which we discern if a product contains hazardous ingredients, a pivotal step in ensuring workplace safety.


2. Label and Other Forms of Warning:

Labels are our frontline defenders. We ensure that every container is properly labeled, and in the event of label wear or tear, we swiftly replace it. This ensures that our team is always aware of the potential hazards associated with each product.


3. Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS):

The MSDS is our treasure trove of information. Divided into sections, it provides vital details about a product, from its identity and composition to potential health effects and safety measures. These sheets are stored in conspicuous places, easily accessible to our team members.


4. Chemical Inventory List:

To streamline our safety efforts, every collection of MSDS is accompanied by a chemical inventory list. This list acts as a quick reference, identifying each product and aiding in efficient hazard management.


5. Training:

Knowledge is power. Our training sessions cover various aspects, including the appearance of products, detection methods, precautions, spill response, storage guidelines, and a deep dive into Oasis’s hazard communication program. It's an integral part of ensuring our workforce is well-equipped to handle any situation.


In identifying potential chemical health hazards, we prioritize the safety of our workforce by pinpointing risks such as Sodium Hydroxide, Calcium Carbonate, Ammonia, and Methyl Alcohol. Through meticulous steps in hazard identification and control, we adhere to OSHA standards, evaluate hazards, and employ corrective measures ranging from engineering controls to personal protective equipment.


Color-coded labels and placards guide our skilled workers through a visual language. From YELLOW for oxidizers to RED for flammables, each color signifies potential risks associated with different types of hazardous materials.


Understanding the types of hazardous materials—Corrosive, Ignitable or Flammable, Reactive, and Toxic—enables us to take proactive measures. Whether it's substances that can burn through containers or those that pose toxicity risks, we ensure our workforce is equipped with the knowledge and tools necessary for their safety.
