New OSHA Hazard Communication Standard
Employee training deadline: December 1, 2013
OSHA revised its Hazard Communication Standard (HCS). According to OSHA, “The new label elements and SDS requirements will improve worker understanding of the hazards associated with the chemicals in their workplace.” Requirements are being phased in over several years (Dec. 13, 2013 – June 1, 2016).
Two significant changes are:
1. Use of new labeling elements; and
2. Standardized format for Safety Data Sheets (SDSs)
Formally known as Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs)
