Hazard Communication has consistently sat near the top of OSHA’s Top 10 Most Frequently Cited Standards for quite a while now. To understand why, and dive a little deeper into the subject, I interviewed Stephen Badger, a safety management consultant with MEMIC. We talk all about the history of the hazard communication standard, the requirements to comply and how you can avoid citations.

But first, a little more about our guest for this episode of the podcast. Stephen Badger is a safety management consultant with experience working in a variety of industries. His experience in the papermaking, medical sterilization and construction industries gives him a unique perspective of the safety needs in manufacturing facilities and in the field. He encourages companies to find innovative safety solutions and not just settle for a “quick fix.” He facilitates employers tapping into their most valuable asset, their employees, for ideas and solutions that may not be available anywhere else.
