OSHA HazCom Standard

OSHA HazCom 2012

On March 26, 2012 OSHA adopted the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) into the Hazard Communication Standard. All employers who have hazardous chemicals that an employee may be exposed to under normal operating conditions, are required to provide training about the new provisions of the Standard.
