(1) It is the
responsibility of any independent contractor who performs work for any public
employer or on any State property to ensure that its employees and its
subcontractors are provided with information and training on hazardous
chemicals being used by the independent contractor or its subcontractors in the
workplace. Documentation that such information and training has been provided
shall be furnished to the workplace manager.
(2) The workplace manager at the site or
property at which an independent contractor or its subcontractors are
performing work shall be notified at least (30) thirty days prior to the
commencement of work of any hazardous chemicals which will be used or stored in
the workplace by the independent contractor or its subcontractors. However,
this (30) thirty day advance notification requirement may be waived in the
event of an emergency. The waiver of said advance notification requirement does
not relieve the independent contractor or its subcontractors from notifying the
workplace manager of any hazardous chemicals which will be used in the
performance of emergency work prior to the commencement of the work or
providing documentation, upon request of the workplace manager, that its
employees or subcontractors have been provided with information and training on
the hazardous chemicals being used or stored in the workplace.
(3) Independent contractors or subcontractors
may not commence work if the contractor or its subcontractors have not complied
with paragraphs (1) and (2) above. Any such delay shall not result in any
penalty to the public employer.
