Introduction to HazCom 2012

Around the world, many countries are already using the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) from the United Nations as a way to classify and label hazardous chemicals. In the United States, OSHA used this system as the basis for a major rewrite of the Hazard Communication Standard. The old "Right To Know" rules are on the way out; HazCom 2012 gives workers a "Right To Understand." The old, confusing Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS), with a different format from every chemical supplier, is gone. Now you'll see information in a consistent, 16-section Safety Data Sheet (SDS). Labels are simpler, too; every chemical label will have the same six parts, from Product Identifiers to Supplier Information, and each hazard will be identified with a bold, recognizable symbol in a red diamond. This popular guide is now available in Spanish.
