In May 2012, OSHA decided to do away with its current – and most frequently cited Hazard Communication Standard, and align with the United Nations Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals.
A new, far-reaching standard requiring the stringent labeling of hazardous chemicals in the workplace, and in-depth training for any staff that handles them. Millions of Material Safety and Data Sheets and labels currently in circulation must be revised, rewritten and republished to comply with GHS provisions.
The standard becomes mandatory on June 1, 2015.
