Safety Data Sheets and Label Authoring Services
How do I comply with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS)?
|Changes to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA) Hazard Communication Standard are bringing the United States into alignment with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS).|
The new Hazard Communication Standard still requires chemical manufacturers and importers to evaluate the chemicals they produce or import and provide hazard information to employers and workers by putting labels on containers and preparing safety data sheets. However, the old standard allowed chemical manufacturers and importers to convey hazard information on labels and material safety data sheets in whatever format they chose. The modified standard provides a single set of harmonized criteria for classifying chemicals according to their health and physical hazards and specifies hazard communication elements for labeling and safety data sheets.
This means chemical manufacturers, importers and distributers need to revise existing Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs) and labels into the newly required Safety Data Sheet (SDS) and label formats.
How does this affect you and your company?
