dont wait

OSHA required all employees to be trained on the new label elements and safety data sheet (SDS) format of the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) by December 1, 2013.

There will be additional requirements over the next two years as the revised Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) is fully implemented.

June 1, 2015

Chemical manufacturers, importers, distributors, and employers must be in compliance with all modified provisions of the final revised HCS, with the exception of shipping container labels.

December 1, 2015

Chemical manufacturers, importers, distributors may only ship containers labeled with a GHS label.

June 1, 2016 Employers must update their alternative workplace labeling. Hazard communication programs must be updated (as necessary) and employees must be provided with any additional employee training for new physical or health hazards.
