OSHA is aligning HCS with the Globally Harmonized System (GHS), a global hazard communication system developed by the United Nations (UN) that standardizes the classification of chemicals and the communication of hazards via labels and MSDSs.

Other changes will significantly alter labels and safety data sheets. “The Hazard Communication Answer Book” can help answer all questions relating to Hazard Communication and these changes to make the work environment a safer place to be.
