OSHA's HazCom 2012 rules for chemical information in the workplace are aligned with the Globally Harmonized System (GHS). Part of this approach is the standardized SDS, which provides the details behind a container label.
This SDS guide lists the sections that OSHA requires on a compliant SDS, described the information that will appear in each section, and shows how the SDS and label match up. It can help you catch up on HazCom compliance, and serve as a training tool for your team.
