 NEWS from OSHA: Requirements for the Revised Hazard Communication Standard are being aligned 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 new label elements and SDS requirements will improve worker understanding of the hazards associated with the chemicals in their workplace. OSHA is phasing in the specific requirements over several years (December 1,2013 to June 1, 2016).
