OSHA Hazard Communication: Serious Eye Damage/Eye Irritation Classification Mobile App
The OSHA Hazard Communication: Serious Eye Damage/Eye Irritation Classification
How does it work?
mobile app is intended to help small employers comply with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) Hazard Communication Standard (HCS). The guide is advisory in nature and informational in content. It is not itself a standard or regulation, and it creates no new legal obligations. The employer must refer to the appropriate standard to ensure it is in compliance.
Changes at the site of first contact (e.g., skin, eye) can be caused regardless of whether a chemical can become systemically available. These changes are considered local effects. Chemicals causing local effects after a single exposure can be further distinguished as irritant or corrosive chemicals, depending on the reversibility of the effects observed.
