OSHA is considering potential updates to its Hazard Communication Standard, in order to stay aligned with the most recent revision of the United Nations Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals.
The American Industrial Hygiene Association® (AIHA) earlier this month filed comments for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's Request for Information (RFI) on Chemical Management and Permissible Exposure Limits (PELs).
MSDSonline, the leading provider of cloud-based environmental, health and safety (EHS) solutions, today introduced enhancements to its Chemical Inventory Scanner application, expanding coverage to include most Apple® and Android™ devices, adding additional functionality, and improving upon an already easy-to-navigate user interface.
As of June 1, chemical manufacturers, importers, distributors and employers are required to provide a common approach to classifying chemicals and communicating hazard information on labels and safety data sheets.
Considering safer alternatives to hazardous chemicals is not a new approach. Thinking about safer alternatives allows employers, workers, and decision-makers to identify solutions, rather than continuing to evaluate and quantify the problem.
