OSHA’s Revised Hazard Communication Standard
As of May 2012, the Hazard Communication Standard has been revised and is now aligned with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). This change to the Hazard Communication Standard was designed to provide a more consistent and coherent means of communicating hazard information on labels and safety data sheets to employees.
All employers are required to address these changes within their current training programs and will soon need to update their Hazard Communication programs to meet the new standard requirements.
