OSHA updates Hazard Communication webpage

November 03, 2015 Washington — The Occupational Safety & Health Administration has updated its Hazard Communication webpage.

OSHA requires all employers who have hazardous chemicals to properly label the chemicals and provide safety data sheets for workers. It also requires employers to train workers on how to regularly handle, store and use hazardous chemicals.

The OSHA Hazard Communication Standard is aligned with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals, which was created to provide a common approach to classifying chemicals and communicating hazard information. For more information, visit OSHA.
