Hazard Communication and GHS-Chemical Safety
In order to ensure chemical safety in the workplace, information about the identities and hazards of the chemicals must be available and understandable to workers. OSHA's Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) requires the development and dissemination of such information:
Chemical manufacturers and importers are required to evaluate the hazards of the chemicals they produce or import and prepare labels and safety data sheets to convey the hazard information to their downstream customers.
All employers with hazardous chemicals in their workplaces must have labels and safety data sheets for their exposed workers, and train them to handle the chemicals appropriately.
The objectives of the Electrical Safety Program are as follows:
Proper Hazard Classification: Provides specific criteria for the classification of health and physical hazards, as well as classification of mixtures.
Proper Chemicals Labelling: Chemical manufacturers and importers will be required to provide a label that includes a harmonized signal word, pictogram, and hazard statement for each hazard class and category. Precautionary statements must also be provided.
Using Safety Data Sheets Correctly: Will now have a specified 16-section format.
Sharing Information and training: Employers are required to train workers on the new labels elements and safety data sheets format to facilitate recognition and understanding.
