HazCom Solutions That Empower Nonprofits

For nonprofits, faith-based institutions, and purpose-driven organizations, it’s all about serving the core mission. MSDSonline gets this. However, part of honoring the communities nonprofits serve means keeping people safe from potential onsite chemical hazards. Furthermore, it’s important to note that nonprofits are just as vulnerable to OSHA citations for noncompliance as any other kind of business. Because of this, it’s key to their mission for nonprofits to take HazCom compliance very seriously.

Nonprofits and mission-based institutions can take many forms, and this can sometimes make hazard communication especially challenging in these settings. From healthcare providers, to community centers, to educational and religious institutions, these organizations all have a duty to protect their employees from chemical hazards and provide them with government-mandated right-to-know information.
