OSHA has issued a proposed rule to update its Hazard Communication Standard to align with the seventh revision of the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals.
Many facility managers are turning to solutions with a low environmental impact to achieve HazCom Standard compliance including the electronic management of MSDSs.
The Hazard Communication proposed rule seeks to ensure that the hazards of all chemicals produced or imported are evaluated and communicated to employers and employees. Modifying OSHA’s existing HCS could harmonize chemical hazard communications worldwide, help U.S. employers compete in the international marketplace, and increase work safety.
