OSHA has released new materials to help employers comply with the newly revised Hazard Communication requirements, including a fact sheet outlining the new training requirements, Quickcards on the new pictogram label requirements, and a brief synopsis on the labels and pictograms.
OSHA, along with the Society of Chemical Hazard Communication, also will be hosting a free webinar on July 25 at 1:30 p.m. (ET). To participate in the webinar, register by July 24.
The first compliance deadline for the revised Harvard Communication standard is Dec. 1, 2013. At this time all employers must have trained their workers on the new label elements and the Safety Data Sheets format. The Hazard Communication Standard was revised to align with the United Nation’s Globally Harmonized System of Classification and labeling of chemicals.
