  • Re-Training within 2 years
  • Under both the current Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) and the revised HCS, an evaluation of chemical hazards must be performed considering the available scientific evidence concerning such hazards. Under the current HCS, the hazard determination provisions have definitions of hazard and the evaluator determines whether or not the data on a chemical meet those definitions. It is a performance-oriented approach that provides parameters for the evaluation, but not specific, detailed criteria. The hazard classification approach in the revised HCS is quite different. The revised HCS has specific criteria for each health and physical hazard, along with detailed instructions for hazard evaluation and determinations as to whether mixtures or substances are covered. It also establishes both hazard classes and hazard categories—for most of the effects; the classes are divided into categories that reflect the relative severity of the effect. The current HCS does not include categories for most of the health hazards covered, so this new approach provides additional information that can be related to the appropriate response to address the hazard. OSHA has included the general provisions for hazard classification in paragraph (d) of the revised rule, and added extensive appendixes (Appendixes A and B) that address the criteria for each health or physical effect.
  • Old system – Label preparer must provide the identity of the chemical (what it is) and appropriate hazard warnings (what it does).New GHS – Hazard classification will generate label requirements specific for each hazard class and category.
  • Must have a symbol inside
  • FlammablesPyrophoricsSelf-heatingEmits flammable gasSelf-reactivesOrganic peroxides
  • Sections 1 through 8 contain general information that should be helpful to those who need to get the information quickly. Sections 9 through 16 contains other scientific and technical information.
  • Technical updates for minor terminology changes,Direct Final Rules for text clarification, andNotice and Comment rulemaking for more substantive or controversial updates such as additional criteria or changes in health or safety hazard classes or categories.
