HazMat and HazCom YouTube Video

Posted Feb. 19, 2018

The U.S. Department of Transportation's (DOT) Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) jointly produced and rolled out a YouTube video [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g9EesPwskkI] and poster [https://www.phmsa.dot.gov/sites/phmsa.dot.gov/files/docs/training/hazmat/56966/phmsa-osha-hazcom-poster.pdf] that provide clarity on the differing agency labeling requirements to communicate the dangers of hazardous materials in transportation (DOT) and in the workplace (OSHA).

Both agencies are responsible for enforcing distinct and separate safety standards regarding the appropriate labeling of chemical hazards through PHMSA's Hazardous Materials Regulations and OSHA's Hazard Communication Standard 2012.
