GHS – It’s Coming Sooner than You May Think… Are You Prepared?

OSHA says it wants to fast-track its proposal to align the Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) with the United Nations’ Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals, commonly known as GHS.

Once adopted, the changes will impact over 40 million workers at more than 5 million U.S. workplaces – primarily in the areas of reclassification of all chemicals, additional training of workers on the new label elements and SDS format, and familiarization of the modified HCS standard – and at an estimated annualized cost of roughly $100 million per year.
