How the chemical industry can comply with new OSHA labeling regulations for hazard communication

29 October 2014

June 2015 is the looming deadline that chemical manufacturers and distributors face for complying with the new Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Hazard Communication Standard regulations.
New changes will bring the United States into alignment with the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals. Building on OSHA’s current Hazard Communication Standard, the GHS is expected to prevent injuries and illnesses, save lives, and improve trade conditions for chemical manufacturers. Complying with GHS Labeling means significant changes in how manufacturers and distributors label hazardous materials (Weber Whitepaper, 25 September 2014).
