Provide adequate information so that all persons involved in the handling and use of hazardous materials know the appropriate actions and safeguards for such materials.
Develop procedures so that all persons involved in the handling and use of hazardous materials will take the appropriate actions in the event of an emergency.
Provide the administrative controls to ensure that the identified hazards are controlled, procedures are followed and training occurs.
Provide the administrative controls to evaluate and validate all policies, procedures and training for occupants and staff.
Whenever new occupants, staff, equipment, materials or processes are introduced, the administrative controls shall provide for appropriate education and training.
Ensure that all aspects of a performance-based design that rely on a response or action from either occupants or staff are clearly identified and documented and that the necessary training and administrative controls are in place and maintained so that the response or action is appropriate.
