  24. 24. Purpose To ensure that the hazards of all chemicals produced or imported are evaluated, and that information concerning their hazards are transmitted to employers and employees. Accomplished with: - container labeling - material safety data sheets - employee training
  25. 25. Outline of Standard (a) Purpose (b) Scope (c) Definitions (d) Hazard Classification (e) Written Hazard Communication Program (f) Labels and Other Forms of Warning (g) Safety Data Sheets (h) Employee Information and Training (i) Trade Secrets (j) Effective Dates (k) Other Standards Affected (l) Appendices
  26. 26. Definitions Terms no longer being defined due to changes in terminology: Hazard warning; identity; and material safety data sheet (MSDS) Terms revised to be consistent with the GHS: Chemical; chemical name; hazardous chemical; health hazard; label; mixture; physical hazard; and trade secret
  27. 27. Definitions The following terms are being added to the definitions section: Classification; hazard category; hazard class; hazard not otherwise classified; hazard statement; label elements; pictogram; precautionary statement; product identifier; pyrophoric gas; safety data sheet (SDS); signal word; simple asphyxiant; and substance
  28. 28. Definitions “Chemical” OSHA previously used “chemical” to indicate both substances and mixtures OSHA has decided to continue using “chemical” in the final rule as meaning those situations where both substances and mixtures are being addressed “Hazardous chemical” means any chemical which is classified as a physical hazard or a health hazard, a simple asphyxiant, combustible dust, pyrophoric gas, or hazard not otherwise classified
  29. 29. Definitions “Hazards Not Otherwise Classified” Classified identifies a hazard, but the evidence does not meet the currently specified criteria covered by Haz Com 2012 Example: Static Accumulator, Magnetic, etc. Information will be required on the safety data sheets in Section 2 Hazard information on the label, is not mandatory, but can be provided under supplementary information Such hazards must also be addressed in worker training
  30. 30. Definitions “Precautionary statement” means a phrase that describes recommended measures that should be taken to minimize or prevent adverse effects resulting from exposure to a hazardous chemical, or improper storage or handling. For example: Wear face protection [for Explosives, Division 1.1]
  31. 31. (d) Hazard Classification  Each type of hazard covered is considered a “hazard class”—such as acute toxicity, carcinogenicity  However, most of these hazard classes are also sub- divided into “hazard categories” to reflect the degree of severity of the effect  This is the concept of “classification”—rather than just determining that there is a hazardous effect (carcinogenicity), there is also a finding of how severe that effect might be (Category 1 or 2)
  32. 32. (d) Hazard Classification Classification Provisions Chemical manufacturers and importers must classify each chemical they produce or import: Determine the appropriate hazard classes and associated hazard categories Base this on an evaluation of the full range of available data/evidence on the chemical (no testing is required) Use Appendix A for health hazard criteria and Appendix B for physical hazard criteria The introduction to Appendix A provides the general approach to classification, including bridging principles
  33. 33. Health Hazards Classifications Hazard Class Hazard Category Acute Toxicity 1 2 3 4 Skin Corrosion/Irritation 1A 1B 1C 2 Serious Eye Damage/ Eye Irritation 1 2A 2B Respiratory or Skin Sensitization 1 Germ Cell Mutagenicity 1A 1B 2 Carcinogenicity 1A 1B 2 Reproductive Toxicity 1A 1B 2 Lactation STOT – Single Exposure 1 2 3 STOT – Repeated Exposure 1 2 Aspiration 1 Simple Asphyxiants Single Category

  36. 36. (e) Written Program Describes how the standard will be implemented in that facility Contains a list of all chemicals
  37. 37. (f) Labels Required Elements Product identifier Signal words Hazard statements Pictograms Precautionary statements Name, address, and telephone number of the chemical manufacturer, importer, or other responsible party A new Appendix C, Allocation of Label Elements, has been provided to indicate the label requirements by hazard class and category Labels are to be updated within 6 months of getting new and significant information about the hazards, or ways to protect those exposed
  38. 38. (f) Labels  OSHA is maintaining the current approach to allowing alternatives to labels on each stationary process container  The exception for portable containers under the control of the person who filled them with the chemical remains the same.  Labels on incoming containers are not to be removed or defaced unless immediately replaced by another label  Workplace labels are to be prominently displayed and in English, although other languages are permitted as well
