Hazard Communication: 29 CFR 1910.1200 / Employee Information and Training
At the time of their initial assignment? [(h)(1)]
No
Notes
This is a critical miss. During today’s audit I discovered that our new employee is not able to identify the chemical used to clean the poultry right after dressing. I have pulled him out of production and I sent a quick notice to the training manager asking for a meeting today.
Actions

Meeting at 3pm regarding a new employee
Hazard Communication: 29 CFR 1910.1200 / SDSs
Are SDSs readily accessible to employees during each work shift? [(g)(8)]
No
Notes
Mark said he is unable to locate the SDS. I think this is an opportunity to understand why he doesn’t seem to locate it when we thought it’s easy to access. Will discuss this later during the meeting.

Comments/Recommendations

I set a meeting with our training manager and Mark today at 3pm to understand what we can do to address these critical issues.
