T6 - Health Hazard
Any product defined as hazardous in 29 CFR 1910.1200, which cannot be assigned any other HCC and which is
supported by documentation such as an MSDS or product bulletin, or through experience is a known health
hazard. Any classification of a material into this category is a process which relies heavily on the professional
judgment of the evaluator, particularly in the area of potential chronic hazards. Such classification should be
considered in light of the fact that although the primary purpose of the HCCs is to assure safe storage of products,
there may be some application of the HCCs in screening products from a pollution prevention as well as safety
and health standpoint. However, hazards associated with the actual use of the item should be made by qualified
Industrial Hygiene personnel.
