Hazard Communicati on Update GHS Globally Harmonized System

Hazard Communicati on Update GHS Globally Harmonized System Introduction The

federal Hazard Communication Standard says that you have a Right-To-Know what hazards you face on the job and how to protect yourself against those hazards. Thats your Right-To-Know! Purpose The

standard was developed to make sure that everyone who works with any hazardous chemical is aware of the hazards and the necessary precautions. What is GHS? The Globally Harmonized System (GHS)

is an international approach to chemical labels and safety data sheets (SDS). OSHAs Hazard Communication standard has adopted the GHS to improve safety and health of workers through more effective communications on chemical hazards. OSHA Compliance Dates OSHA

is requiring training on new label elements (pictograms and signal words) and safety data sheet (SDS) format by December 2013. Full compliance in the workplace with the final rule will begin in 2016. Requirements of a GHS Label

Pictograms A symbol plus a red diamond border intended to convey specific information about the hazards of a chemical. 4 Health Hazard Pictograms 5 Physical Hazard Pictograms Health Hazard PictogramCorrosion

Safety Data Sheets (SDS) SDS are multi-page documents that contain more detailed information about a chemical than the container label. The revised HazCom standard requires that the information on the SDS is presented using consistent headings in a specific order.

16-Section SDS Format 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.

Identification Hazard(s) Identification Composition/Information on Ingredients First-Aid Measures Fire-Fighting Measures Accidental Release Measures Handling and Storage Exposure Controls/Personal Protection

16-Section SDS Format Physical and Chemical Properties 10. Stability and Reactivity 11. Toxicological Information 12. Ecological Information 13. Disposal Considerations 14. Transport Information 15. Regulatory Information 16. Other Information 9.

Conclusion During the phase-in period, employees will see the old and new labels on chemical containers. All chemical containers in the workplace have to be in compliance with the new standard by June 2016.
