A chemical hazard assessment (CHA), sometimes referred to as a chemical safety assessment (CSA), is an essential component in any laboratory or industry dealing with raw chemicals, making chemical hazard assessment translations essential for competing in the global chemicals industry. Chemical hazard assessment translations aim to increase workplace and product safety by communicating potentially hazardous chemicals or chemical combinations in the languages needed by overseas buyers and users. Understanding and evaluating these potential risks also helps ensure that proper safety protocols are established and followed for all stages of the chemical development cycle.
There are many ways to conduct a chemical safety assessment. With so many different options, recording the process for a chemical safety assessment is extremely important, so it may be compiled into a chemical safety report (CSR). This, combined with the material safety data sheet (MSDS/PSDS), must be submitted to the local regulatory body for assessment and approval. Examples of regulatory bodies requiring CSRs include the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), as well as the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA). These safety data sheets must include accurately localized information pertaining to chemical mixtures, as well as instructional guidelines for dealing with potential hazards and managing chemical spills in an occupational setting. Translating chemical safety reports is crucial not only in gaining regulatory approval, but also to help ensure worker safety.

Chemical Hazard Training Translations
An integral part of ensuring workplace safety when dealing with chemicals is through training workers on following proper safety procedures and protocols. To do so, utilizing the right tools like standard operating procedures (SOPs), hazardous risk scenario examples, lab safety training videos, and safety checklists are crucial in mitigating accidents, risks, or injuries associated with handling and using raw chemicals.
