The HazCom 2012 deadline is just 13 days away. Are your chemical labels and SDS sheets compliant? There’s been a lot of confusion regarding OSHA’s standards, how GHS is incorporated, and what a compliant label looks like.
Before the HazCom 2012 standards went into effect, OSHA’s rules for labeling hazardous materials were called Right-To-Know, or RTK standards. Under the RTK standards employers were required to label chemical hazards but were not given label format requirements. This meant multiple label formats were created and used, which led to confusion. This short video will go over what a HazCom compliant label looks like, the elements that comprise it, and the newly required elements of a safety data sheet.
