NIOSH's HazCom Helper provides individuals responsible for writing a MSHA HazCom written program with software to aid in writing their HazCom program and for identifying hazardous chemicals on site. MSHA's new HazCom rule (30 CFR Part 47) requires all mines to determine which chemicals are hazardous, write a Hazard Communication Program, label all containers containing hazardous chemicals, keep MSDS's for all hazardous chemicals, provide HazCom training to employees, and to make the HazCom information available to employees.
