OSHA Hazard Communication Standard Revisions Safety Bulletin

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recently revised its existing Hazard Communication Standard to conform to the United Nations’ Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals.
The purpose of OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard is to ensure that workers are informed about the chemical hazards that they may be exposed to in the workplace. The agency believes that the revisions will reduce the incidence of chemical-related occupational injuries and illnesses.
