Hazard Communication Standard Updates

The United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has incorporated aspects of the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals into its Hazard Communication Standard (29 CFR 1910.1200).  This update to the Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) will provide a common and coherent approach to classifying chemicals and communicating hazard information on labels and safety data sheets.

Companies that manufacture hazardous chemicals such as Heatbath/Park Metallurgical must assess the hazards of their products and produce labels and safety data sheets in compliance with (HAZCOM) by June 1, 2015.  We want to assure our customers that we are hard at work on this very large project and will be in compliance by that date.

For more information concerning the Hazard Communication Standard and its requirements, please contact OSHA at: (800) 321-OSHA or https://www.osha.gov/dsg/hazcom/
