Hazard Communication

Hazard Communication Program

The Texas Hazard Communication Act (HCA) of the Texas Health and Safety Code (Chapter 502) is a law that requires public employers to provide employees with specific information regarding hazardous chemicals to which employees may be exposed in the workplace. UTMB Health’s goal is to comply with the Texas Hazard Communication Act as well as with OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard (29 CFR 1910.1200).  UTMB IHOP Policy 08.01.30 contains specific institutional requirements for departments to meet these requirements.  This website is designed to provide you with material and guidance to help support your compliance with UTMB requirements related to Hazard Communication.
