Abstract
Warning labels are worthless if you don't understand them. OSHA has adopted a new standardized system of labeling. Some of these new labels are on the job now. Your employer is responsible for 1) Training you about chemical hazards you are exposed to. 2) Giving you access to Safety Data Sheets about hazardous products on your worksite. 3) Creating a written program with a list of hazardous chemicals on your site. 4) Protecting you from exposures to all hazardous products, even those used by other employers on your site. Why should you care about this? More than 50,000 U.S. workers die every year from work-related diseases due to chemical exposures. Keep this card as a guide to the new symbols - and what they mean.
