The Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) is now fully aligned with the Globally Harmonized System (GHS). GHS defines and classifies the hazards of chemical products, and communicates health and safety information. There are five main requirements: a written hazard communication plan, chemical inventory, proper labels and warnings, up-to-date safety data sheets and employee training.
OSHA estimates the revised standard will prevent 43 fatalities and 585 injuries and illnesses. Protect your workers by learning more at www.osha.gov/hazcom.
