December 1, 2013 Requirements for the Revised Hazard Communications Standard from OSHA

Monday, July 1, 2013

OSHA has revised its Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) to align with the United Nations' Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). Two significant changes in the revised standard require the use of new labeling elements and a standardized format for Safety Data Sheets (SDSs), formerly known as, Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs). The new label elements and SDS requirements will improve worker understanding of the hazards associated with the chemicals in their workplace. OSHA requires that employers train their workers by December 1, 2013 on the new label elements and Safety Data Sheets format. For more information on the new GHS standard, contact Cole Cummins, your loss control manager, at ccummins@akpei.com.
