GHSOSHA’s deadline for training workers on its updated Hazard Communication Standard is looming large.

The agency is requiring that workers be trained by Dec. 1 on the new label elements and safety data sheets (SDS).

The HazCom standard provides a common and coherent approach to classifying chemicals and communicating hazard information on labels and SDS.

For employers still trying to figure out the requirements, OSHA has information and resources available, including QuickCards, a training fact sheet (PDF*), a list of frequently asked questions and a brief (PDF*) on labels and pictograms on the agency’s Hazard Communications page.
