ABSTRACT:
Hazardous Material Information System (HMIS) is one of the simplest inclusive hazard communication systems by which worker gets informed about the workplace hazards proactively, thereby receives appropriate training to work safely. The system therefore creates a safer workplace by making workers aware of hazards as a means of quick and emergency access relatively. The system is to reduce the likelihood of exposure of workers from workplace injuries, illness and accidents by proactive information through cautionary labels and symbols (with the perspective of layman) of hazards, adequate (PPE) personnel protective equipment, appropriate fire extinguishing media. This can be achieved by management commitment via communicating and displaying HMIS at the notice boards and giving training to the workers for ensuring better and safer workplace. This system is one of the attempts for the safe management of hazardous chemicals in the workplace by providing a user-friendly interface to vendors, clients and employees.
