OSHA has modified the Hazard communication Standard (HCS) to adopt the GHS of classifying and labeling of chemicals. The GHS provides a standardized approach for determining hazards presented by a chemical and standardized labeling. The GHS format of SDS will also allow workers to access the information more efficiently and effectively. OSHA has identified phase-in dates for the revised HCS, the first of which is employee training on the new labeling and SDS format to be provided by employers by December 1, 2013.
