Revised Hazard Communication Standard

Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS)

OSHA 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 contained 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 first compliance date of the revised HCS is December 1, 2013.  By that time employers must have trained their workers on the new label elements and the SDS format.
