A new infographic has been released just in time for OSHA’s June 1 compliance deadline for its hazard communication requirements. The infograhic walks users through a simple, step-by-step process to determine if a chemical label must meet OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) criteria or Globally Harmonized System (GHS) criteria.
By June 1, all chemical manufacturers, importers, distributors and employers must provide updated chemical labels.
“Many of our customers have been confused by the changes in labeling requirements,” said Brian McFadden, compliance specialist with Graphic Products. “In trying to keep their workers safe, they've combined old rules with third-party standards, and only made things more tangled. They needed a simple, straightforward guide to understand what is actually required.”
The complimentary flowchart is available online.
