Hazard Communication for Mining - Video
Mining facilities normally have chemicals on-site that require specific labeling and documentation to inform miners about the potential chemicals hazards they may face at work. MSHA's Title 30 CFR - Part 47 Hazard Communication standard, or "HazCom," outlines chemical labeling and documentation requirements to help mine operators reduce injuries and illnesses for miners and mining contractors.
