NIOSH comments are provided on the following areas: scope and industries covered; consumer products covered; nuisance dust; grain dust; hazard determination methods; written hazard communication program; multiemployer worksite provision; labels and other forms of warnings; and material safety data sheets. NIOSH strongly supports the inclusion of all workers under the Hazard Communication Standard.
