OSHA Hazard Communication Standard Revised


OSHA's Hazard Communication Standard has been revised to align it with the
United Nations' Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals. This update to the Hazard Communication Standard provides a common and coherent approach to classifying chemicals and communicating hazard information on labels and safety data sheets. Chemical manufacturers and importers are now required to provide a label that includes a harmonized signal word, pictogram, and hazard statement for each hazard class and category. Precautionary statements must also be provided. In addition,Safety Data Sheets will now have a specified 16-section format.
By December 1, 2013, all employers with hazardous chemicals in the workplacemust conduct new training for workers on the new label elements and safetydata sheets format to facilitate recognition and understanding.
