GHS - Are You Ready for the Updates?

GHS - Are You Ready for the Updates?

With a new GHS deadline coming up in a couple of months, this topic is being talked about a lot – especially since it covers over 43 million workers who produce or handle hazardous chemicals in more than five million workplaces across the country. And we are no exception.

But before we get into what this most recent deadline entails, as well as how to get up-to-date, here are a few cool benefits to what this new standard will accomplish, straight from the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) :

The next GHS deadline is June 1, 2015 and requires companies that manufacture hazardous chemicals to provide GHS-compliant SDSs and labels to downstream users. Manufacturers may not ship products lacking GHS labeling from this point forward, and distributors have already been under the same obligation since December 1, giving them an extra six months to allow for the depletion of existing inventory. Additionally, employers must comply with HazCom 2012 compliance standards for workplace labeling, hazard communications programs, and additional employee training for newly identified physical or health hazards by June 2016.
