Topic: December 1, 2013 is the deadline for training employees on how to read Safety Data Sheets and labels in accordance with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). The GHS includes criteria for the classification of health, physical and environmental hazards and specifies information to include on hazardous chemical labels and safety data sheets. Federal OSHA’s Hazard Communication (HazCom) Standard was revised to align with the GHS (now called Hazcom 2012), and California's Cal/OSHA HazCom is also being revised.
